In her works, Anett Frontzek investigates urban, architectural, geological or sociological structures using the media of drawing, paper cutting and in installations. To work on her thematic questions, she draws on scientific or statistical material in databases, finds in archives on site or references in media reports. These materials serve as a data-giving basis as well as cartographic material, which is sometimes also processed in the original. Her artistic work, whose essential characteristic is site-specific research and its artistic transformation, has been supported by numerous prizes and grants since 1993.
Anett Frontzek's works are represented in public collections including the Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA New York and the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Art at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and have been presented in exhibitions at home and abroad.
Solo exhibitions were last seen at the Saarländisches Künstlerhaus in 2021, at the Kunstverein zu Rostock in 2020, at the Galerie Hoffmann in Friedberg in 2019/2020, at the Städtische Galerie Waidspeicher of the Museums Erfurt in 2019 and at the Gotland Museum in Visby, Sweden in 2018.
The freelance artist studied fine arts at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, is a member of the Deutscher Künstlerbund, curates exhibitions and accompanies young artists as a mentor in mentoring programmes in NRW and MV.
