Her voice is  alienated and multiplicated with live-  electronics by Michel Lavignon. The  videos generate short-lived fugitive  virtual paintings. Videos and sound are  alternating between figuration and  abstraction by artificial resolutions and  decompositions in space and time. The  resulting room installations and art  performances are delicate and at the  same time disturbing. anna.laclaque is educated as opera  singer, pianist, and painter. As opera  singer Annette Stricker, she performed  world premieres in leading opera  houses. Contemporary music inspired  her to vocal improvisation with live-  electronics to develop her individual  sound-repertoire. In her current  artworks, she refers to her background  in visual arts and classical music to  create multi-media room installations  still evoking associations from her  theatre-experience. Each installation is  specifically adapted to the given  settings where she is invited to  perform. anna.laclaque aims at understanding  the position of the individual in the real  world and its tension between self-  determination and isolation. By using  her own body and voice she visually and acoustically evokes various  representations of the self. The  confrontation of these selfs infers a  fragile holistic picture of a fluctuating  and fugitive personality. The artwork  represents an in vain attempt to capture the own personality from the variety of  its different aspects. The artist is a  representative for any human and  becomes an object of projection for the  spectator.
