About the artist

Anna Mari Liivrand (born in 1993) is an installation artist who also works with drawing. She is a sensitive creator interested in the conventional use of everyday materials and related unconscious judgements. Using poetic language, Liivrand explores evanescence and melancholy in today’s society. In recent years, Liivrand has focused on everyday rituals, ornaments and decoration. She often examines them from the point of self-creation and how they act as anchor points in an ever-changing world filled with uncertainties and anxieties. Her works are combinations of unusual materials (i.e. pieces of her skin, vitamins etc.) and traditional craft practices, which come together in elegant spatial installations.

 

Anna Mari Liivrand graduated from the sculpture and installation department (BA, 2016) and contemporary art (MA, 2022) at the Estonian Academy of Arts and has also studied fine arts at the Iceland University of Arts. In 2014, Liivrand received the Young Sculptor Prize. In addition to solo exhibitions, she has participated in numerous group shows, including the 7th Artishok Biennale. She was the recipient of the Eduard Wiiralt prize in 2020. She was awarded with Estonian Cultural Endowment’s annual award (2021).
