The Unavoidable Project of Life 070825-090512
School feels empty now, but the memories of us stay loud. This is an unavoidable project, dealing and living through a heartbreaking loss.
It’s a project where I found the climax of my pain and set myself free.
Through my work, I went straight into the wound; released the pain and gave it a voice and a body. The process and its needs are continuing and changing all the time.
The greatest part in crisis and grief is healing, evolution and the art of sharing, but the most powerful and strengthening part was the genuine experience of anger.
It was claiming my right to express true, human feelings of injustice.
“Du älskar livet Anna. Om någon älskar livet så är det du.”
Bachelor of Fine Arts, Ädellab/MF, 15th of April 2009
Statement of exhamination:
"With the exam work
of Anna Tascha Larsson we witness an extreme and personal journey
that results in sensitive work.
The exam project reveals a determent investigation and it shows her sensitive insight into an artistic process. Her exam work creates a strong impression through the meaning of the chosen materials in combination with the placement of the human body. And, it provides us with the feeling of despair but combined with a quiet sadness that embraces the viewers and invites us into the atmosphere of the pieces.
We wish for Anna Tascha Larsson to keep hold of her strength and most of all self-confidence gained through and expressed in this sensitive work."
