Printmaking Today, Perfect Purchase

IMG_1518

Article in Printmaking Today: Perfect Purchase, with a review of the Clifford Chance Purchase Prize I won in November 2013. The prize means one of my prints becomes a part of the one of the largest print collections in Britain. It was selected by Emma Stibbon  RA who ‘was impressed with the quality of her print installation. Stibbon said Ahrens’ work ‘alludes to the history of landscape art, the picturesque, but re-invents it into something surprising.’

My work is concerned with auratic translations, interpretation and fiction in our encounters with the landscape. I use photographic installations, projections and print editions to explore notions of the politics of place, resistance and ruin. I am interested in the spaces between what we know and what we think we know about the world, and have investigated these ideas in a series of installations and prints over the last few years.
