Anné M. Klint is a filmmaker, media installation artist and curator based in Oakland (CA). She is a 2003 graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts (Photography) where she studied with Jim Goldberg, Larry Sultan and Mark Thompson. As a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Klint also studied New Genres with Joachim Blank and Helmut Mark at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, Germany (2007-08). Klint has exhibited internationally and is an ongoing, though intermittent resident of the Stonehouse Residency for the Contemporary Arts. Her public art is on permanent display in the Tracy (CA) Multi-Modal Transit Station and Grand Theatre Center for the Arts, where she was Artist-in-Residence (2012-2013).
Curatorial efforts include a large-scale feature exhibition, A Measure of Humanity, The Harcos-Huneke Collection, which opened the 2009 exhibition season at the Grand Galleries, Grand Theatre Center for the Arts. Other curatorial projects include The Hatchery: East of Fresno as well as the pop-up space, Inhabit Gallery, which debuted in Oakland with the inaugural exhibition, Cohabit (2011). Klint was recently awarded a prestigious grant from the Creative Work Fund/ArtPlace to create a multi-media, collaborative art project exploring the effects of the housing market crash on the small Central Valley City of Tracy, California. The project resulted in a feature length documentary titled HOME, a gallery exhibition and an artist book.
The driving concept behind my work has been our relationship to and experience of the ‘natural world’ while operating within an increasingly mediated realm. With attention focused on site/environment and nature/culture, I use new media, sculpture and installation to intervene. Through metaphorical or actual lenses, perspective, time, distance, memory and space are subject to distortion and manipulation.
My work has several distinct threads, one where I explore landscape through the mediated lens, and another where I explore complicated relationships to nature via our interactions with animals, be they wild or domesticated, or those unluckiest who fall somewhere in-between.
In 2012 I began a new approach to working–Social Practice–in which I filter these interests through community-focused, collaborative-minded projects, of which Inhabit Your City: Voices of Tracy is the first.
