In her gender-specific approach, Anja Manfredi explores the relationship between the body and its inscription in hegemonic structures determined by society. Her work focuses on the examination of movements and gestures and the research into historical to contemporary (ideal) images, traced by the artist in diverse pictorial archives.

These materials are included in her »archive of movements« and serve as models for her own re-creations or are directly integrated into her work as collages. Here photography plays the role of self-questioning, whenever production and reproduction create a new (media) reality, deciphering the original picture and revealing its cultural codes. The medium of photography enables her to choose arbitrary measurements and to give the individual elements a new purpose on the blank page after processing it with scissors and glue. From this act of recycling, the pictorial works are transferred to a new media orbit. It is important for the artist to insist on the power of photography, the worked-through artistic process re-creating an autonomous artwork, an original, from the re-staging of the reproduction..
