Ane Mette Hol uses drawing as a method for investigating the relationship between originals and reproductions. Her painstaking work often results in accurately copied objects and phenomena, which may often seem mundane and trivial. Her works often infiltrate the context of the exhibition, or question the very medium of drawing. Hol’s working methods are signified by precision and patience; using paper and drawing tools, she copies things down to the smallest detail. Her technical skills are by no means overshadowed by the concept. Hol has made copies of brown paper, rolls of drawing paper, music sheets, drawing pads, floor paper, and book covers. She has reproduced printouts from the internet, botched photocopies, and entire book jackets. The completed works could often be mistaken for the originals.

Ane Mette Hol was born in Bodø in 1979, and grew up in Trondheim. She studied at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and Stockholm University College of Arts, Crafts and Design 2001–2006, and has exhibited widely in Norway and internationally. In 2011 she was awarded the Statoil Art Award, and head of the jury, Olav Christopher Jenssen, stated: “The artworks by the winner of the 2011 award distinguish themselves formally, technically, and conceptually. They are quiet in terms of expression, and highly consistent in their exploration.” Hol’s work is represented at the National Museum for Art, Architecture and Design, and in Sørlandets Kunstmuseum’s collections. She currently lives and works in Oslo.
