The multi-disciplinary artist Anna Sofia-Sysser presents us with a number of works that combine her connected installation and photographic practice. Working between performance, video, installation and photography, Sysser explores and examines tropical representations and artificial tropical reconstructions. Through botanical gardens, spas, and food produces, Sysser presents us with visual research into the concept of ‘tropicality’. This term, coined by David Arnold in ‘The Problem of Nature’ in 1996, forms the theoretical groundwork of Sysser’s art. It is in this paper that Arnold defines tropicality as a construct of the West with regards to an environmental ‘other’. Through media such as theatre, costume, movement, video, writing, workshops and applied art, Sysser values collectives, encounters, presence, equality and sincerity in her artworks. This unusual and highly focused interest forms the integral core of the artist that is expressed in her varied and wide-ranging creative practice. Sysser’s works have been exhibited in Finland, Indonesia, Japan, Italy, Germany and Austria.
