Anna Fro Vodder
Works with Liveart Denmark
2014: Face Painting for Adults, Overgaden, Copenhagen.
Face Painting for Adults
As a critical and humorous comment on the ways the art market asesses the value of art works, Live Art Denmark invited three established visual artists and painters, Kathrine Ærtebjerg, Christian Schmidt Rasmussen and Anna Fro Vodder, to create temporary artworks, using the faces of grown ups as their canvas. Participants were given a unique painting of a well known contemporary Danish artist for free. The only catch: The paintings were obviously temporary and therefore could not be sold at any price, much less the prices these artists usually obtain on the market. In extension, the action addressed the question how the value of performances is assessed.
