About Annette

Annette du Plessis

Annette Du Plessis 1955, Cape Town, South Africa) is an artist who works in a variety of media. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Du Plessis tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

Her artworks directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. With a conceptual approach, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.

Her works never show the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, she wants to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil poetic images that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.

Her works appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, well-known tropes merge, meanings shift, past and present fuse. Time and memory always play a key role. Annette Du Plessis currently lives in Port Elizabeth.
