Biografie
Ann Wodinski (Genk, 1979) studeerde in 2003 af aan de PHL te Hasselt met een meesterschap in de vrije kunsten. Ze woont en werkt in Antwerpen. Onder de naam The Office voor Momentum Management, werkt zij rond het thema van 'Dichtung und Wahrheit' en de creatie van een identiteit. In haar installaties, archieven, teksten, videowerken en tekeningen ontrafelt ze op persoonlijke wijze de geschiedenis en het verleden van zichzelf, haar Duitse en Belgische familie en van die vreemden. Vooraf bepaalde feiten en persoonlijke interpretaties zijn hiervan het resultaat. Ze archiveert, documenteert en organiseert dit alles terwijl ze gebruik maakt van de structuur en de vorm van de biografie en post factum rationalisatie. Daarnaast is haar werk een onderzoek naar vervlogen tijden en landschappen, het gevoel iets kostbaars te hebben verloren en de manier waarop herinneringen worden geconserveerd en overgebracht naar het heden. Sinds 2010 tenslotte, geeft zij als docent Plastische Opvoeding en Project Kunstvakken les aan de Thomas More hogeschool te Turnhout.
