Anne-Marie Creamer, About

Anne-Marie Creamer’s practice encompasses videos, drawings and paintings; her exploratory and experimental approach to narrative often features stories nested within other stories, forming larger mise-en-abyme structures.  She explores ways narrative is embedded in place and her works often centre on the existence of artefacts or chance happenings to which she takes a deliberately oblique approach, often involving others, in developing narratives about what is in the end a missing object; her encounter with a group of dancing Székey children in Romania, echoing the lost 130 children of the German town of Hamlin; wedding rings in a cup of coffee on a train at Paddington station; the lost homeland implied in the 200 letters Transylvanian exile Mikes Kelemen wrote to his fictitious aunt in the 18th century; an old coat found in an abandoned apartment in Bohemia; or the stories the people of a Norwegian island told her about the enigmatic death of a fictional old man, the oldest man in the region.  

Her latest film project, ‘Treatment for Six Characters’, is based on an unrealized film Italian writer Luigi Pirandello’s wished to make about the creation of his seminal 1921 play  Six Characters in Search of an Author –  using a text found in a drawer in Vienna about twenty-five years ago Creamer adapted Pirandello’s documented plans, and influenced by Pirandello's as well as Berthold Brecht's ideas about drama she has made a film that explores the imaginative possibilities of Pirandello's absent film. 

Creamer’s work is regularly exhibited internationally at galleries and museums such as: Sogn og Fjordane Kunstmuseum (Norway), Palm Springs Art Museum, Kunstvereniging Diepenheim (The Netherlands), The Sir John Soane’s Museum (London), Apex Art (New York) Draiocht Arts Center (Dublin), Sagacho bis (Tokyo), Galerie der Künstler (Munich), and Spacex Gallery (Exeter). Publications that feature her work include The Drawing Book, edited by Tania Kovats (Black Dog Publishing, 2006). She received the Derek Hill Scholarship in Drawing at British School at Rome, 2012.

Anne-Marie was educated at Middlesex university and the Royal College of Art.  She lives in London, where she is a Lecturer at the University of the Arts, London.
