In the Absence of: Anna Landa opens exhibition at Christopher Henry Gallery
Anna Landa was born in the former Soviet Union and immigrated to the United States during one of the last waves of Jewish emigrees in the late 1980s. She presently lives and works in New York City.


NEW YORK, NY.- Anna Landa introduces her latest work on the upper level of Christopher Henry Gallery, opened June 27th and running through July 28th. The work on display includes an interactive sound installation alongside a series of photographic images, reflecting her preoccupation with the idea of self, time, and mortality.

Departing from her primary focus on two-dimensional imagery, Landa’s sound installation evokes the major themes of her artistic work by way of an entirely different sensory mechanism. Inspired by new research observing a fixed number of heartbeats in all mammals, the piece incorporates her own recorded heartbeat in an attempt to quantify human life's finite nature and bring the notion of mortality to the forefront of consciousness.

Her photographic works are all deeply personal glimpses into the perspective of one raised under the influence of post-Soviet-Era nostalgia. Her distinct style of anti-climactic portraiture behaves like a still life: subjects are stale and frozen in time as though relegated to a permanent state of transition. Landa’s technical process similarly reflects a loose and personal approach. She prints her images by hand in her bathtub, in much the same manner as that in the USSR. There is no elaborate process, and each image results in a slightly different variation.

Anna Landa was born in the former Soviet Union and immigrated to the United States during one of the last waves of Jewish emigrees in the late 1980s. She presently lives and works in New York City.
