What is the status of the copy in relation to its original? What role does the original play when it vanishes behind perfect reproductions? How does the medium it is presented in influence perception? Ane Mette Hol’s art poses these questions by producing precise doppelgängers of paintings, photographs, texts, films, or book pages. Hol’s carefully honed precision is riveting. In their paradoxical quality her works are (not) Magritte’s pipe for the twenty-first century. The publication also works with this strategy: it offers not only a survey of Hol’s work from the last two years, but itself becomes part of this dialectic game. Hol herself has reproduced some of the pages again, integrating them into the catalogue as copied originals of a copy.
