Anja will be showing new work in "vollschlank," a solo exhibition as part of Vienna's biennial photography festival, “eyes-on: Monat der Fotografie”.

 

The show is in an unusual location: a dentist office in Vienna's first district! Dr. Hollmann & Dr. Lhotka regularly work with galleries and individual artists to present exhibitions in their offices so that they and their patients have a variety of art to enjoy. It's the perfect venue to show these photographs of sugary sweets and other food-related themes.

 

The opening is Thursday, November 13, 2014, at 7pm, with an introduction by Christof Stein, at Dr. Hollmann & Dr. Lhotka OG (Köllnerhofgasse 6, 1010 Wien). The exhibition will run November 14 – February 28, 2015, Mondays–Thursdays, 9am – 6pm.
