[from exhibition at Roland Aphold Gallery, Basel, Switzerland, 2006, article by Michael Huebl]

The exhibition’s motto is a dialogue written by the Hungarian Poet Sándor Márai (1900 – 1989):

“Truth, the true nature of things, I don’t know…”
“But you know reality.”
“Reality is not truth - reality is only a part.”

The poetic ambivalence hidden in these sentences is a fundamental aesthetic attribute of Anja Mohn’s art. Her installations, objects and films are of almost sorrowful joy and blissful melancholy.
