Ann Lundén Jacoby


  Biography

Ann JacobyAnn Lundén Jacoby (ALJ) was born in 1946 in Uppsala, Sweden, where she lived and worked until she moved to Denmark in 1985.
Starting her painting career at a mature age, ALJ was originally a trained sociologist [Fil.Dr.) from the University of Uppsala where she worked for nearly twenty years.
In the late 1980es she abandoned sociology and started as an independent concert organiser and manager within classical music. Later, she worked as the production manager of two major concert projects connected with Copenhagen being the 1996 European Capital of Culture.
Only in the late 1990es, during a prolonged period of illness, did Ann Lundén Jacoby seriously start painting and expressing herself visually. In 2002, ALJ made her début at the censured Kunstnernes Sommerudstilling [Artists’ Summer Exhibition] where she was also represented in 2003 and 2004 – and already in 2003, she was invited to have two exclusive exhibitions in Uppsala (ekeby qvarn art space) and in Stockholm (galleri CM Bellman).
In March 2005 followed Ann Lundén Jacoby’s first exclusive exhibition in Denmark, at the Galopperiet gallery in Christiania, Copenhagen.
Further exhibitons worth mentioning are two exclusive exhibitions on the Faroe Islands during the summer of 2006, one in Tórshavn, the other in Porkeri on the island of Suduroy.
The fall of 2006 saw an exclusive exhibition at Kirsten Kjærs Museum where Ann Lundén Jacoby was also invited to be the house artist of the museum for a period of one month.
