Installation at Gentofte Art Library, Denmark, 1986.

9 large walls of perspex and handmade paper,  each 250 x 150 cm.

The transparency of the paper is refracted by the light, which gives the space a floating, dream – like character. A new concept of the term “wall” has been achieved.

Installation in the Hothouse, 1988.

Handmade paper has been attached to a double glazing. Each panel has its own cohesive colouring and structure. A hothouse is shaped for weightless connection – a transparent interspace. Nine aquaria symbolize the earth material from which paper is created.

27 glass doors decorated with handmade paper.

Handmade paper is glued onto 27 glass panels of folding doors, thus producing countless formations and figures, which change their appearance with the changing light. The cross as symbol stands out as luminous watermarks, when caught by the light. The basic compositional element in the ornamentation is the floor plan of the  church, which has been transferred as reflections in the glass panels. The philosophical aspects that may be associated with the nature of paper are centred on the life of human beings from birth to life.

Lienzo

The series Lienzo – from destruction to creation is inspired and developed by the bull, the bullfight and its history. The bull has been worshipped in numerous early religions. Ritual sacrifice of the beasts in one form or another goes back to before the days of written history.

In her art Anne Vilsboell has often drawn on mythological subject matter and included the animal in her art.

Living in Provence since 15 years she is inspired by its taurine traditions. Visits to the Arles Arena awakened her earlier fascination as a young girl attending bullfights in Spain.

A bullfight contains an image of our world. It is about sacrifices and loss, life and death. The painter must rule his nature in order to create, which can be compared to tame the bull.

Her fascination is shared by numerous artists in history: Titian, Goya, Picasso, Francis Bacon, Roy Lichtenstein and many others.
It is believed that the Spanish matador Francisco Romero (1700 – 1763) introduced the red cape (muleta) into bullfighting in around 1726. It is believed that the muleta developed from a white linen or hemp cloth called lienzo used to divert the attention of the bull.
Over centuries a very large number of passes was invented by the matadors, who according to their taste, used either blue or yellow muletas. In 1928 – in Madison Square Garden, NY, the matadors, dictated by the society protective animal societies, used green muleta.

With her series Lienzo Anne Vilsboell has created a colour scale with which one can combine one’s own overlapped hangings according to one’s own taste. The lienzo = muleta has developed from an instrument of protection to an instrument of domination.
