Anita Groener ( 1958 - )


Anita Groener is a Dutch born artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Her work, like her life, is grounded in a transcultural perspective. Notions of home and displacement within modern geopolitical realities drive the enquiry directed through drawing. Of particular interest is how this becomes manifest through temporality and in a relationship with place. Her practice comprises large scale installations, drawings and film that she exhibits internationally. Her most recent large-scale commission is at Facebook’s EMEA Headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. Exhibitions include Citizen at Butler Gallery Kilkenny, Ireland; Poggiali & Forconi Gallery, Florence, Italy; Point B, Williamsburg NYC, US; Second Drawing festival and Amsterdam Drawing Art Fair with Witteveen Visual Arts Centre Amsterdam, The Netherlands; I Am Always Touched By Your Presence Dear, Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin; Into Irish Drawing | Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris, France and Land at Rubicon Gallery Dublin as part of Dublin Contemporary programme. Groener’s work is included in the collections of The Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Arts Council Ireland, State Art Collection Ireland OPW, VU University Medical Centre Amsterdam, Irish Contemporary Arts Society, AIB Bank, ABN-AMRO Bank, The National Drawing Archive and many private international collections. The artist is a member of Aosdána, the Irish affiliation that recognises outstanding contributions to Irish culture.
