Writings, Conversations, Scripts is the first survey of text works by Ane Hjort Guttu. Written between 2003 and 2018, the texts range from public statements, poetic short prose, and film scripts to reflections on the role of the artist and essays on art for children. With a special focus on the significance of “image-text constellations,” this anthology, edited by Rike Frank and designed by HIT, suggests connections between artistic writing and curatorial publishing.
The publication was conceived in connection with the solo exhibition “Films” by Ane Hjort Guttu at Tromsø Kunstforening in 2018, co-curated by Rike Frank and Leif Magne Tangen, and was generously supported by Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Norsk Kulturråd, Office for Contemporary Art Norway, and Fritt Ord.
