The Blow

The Blow is Anja Niemi’s new series of work, which is making its debut at The Ravestijn Gallery. This on-point series considers the need for resilience in the face of hardship and the importance of self-belief. The artist constructs complex narratives in her images, in which she is both author and actor, that centre on the idea of concealment. Other images are composed using objects laden with meaning and tackling themes such as rejection, denial, societal pressure, anxiety and the countless other number of conflicts humans wrestle with, including ourselves.
