Anastasia Klose

Anastasia Klose’s work explores a particular “aesthetic of the pathetic“, but not in the derogatory sense that it may first imply.  Reviewing her work in NEW07, Jared Davis wrote that:
Klose’s self-deprecating artistry reveals a superb talent for the manipulation of her filmic medium.  Her dry, apathetic sense of humour is both consciously ironic, and holistically human…Klose’s work is not merely provocactive irony, but an exquisitely intrinsic view of people – our strengths and our failures.

 

Klose’s video work embodies the “low tech aesthetic that is heralding a wider shift in contemporary Australian art-making practices”.
