Anne Rudanovski is an Estonian sculptor and art professor.

Anne Rudanovski, an Estonian visual artist and lecturer, delves into the world of paper, a man-made medium rich with cultural significance. Her creative journey reflects an unwavering fascination with paper’s boundless potential. With mastery over origami techniques, she brings captivating life to large-scale paper sculptures and installations. 

In 2019, Anne embarked on a six-month exploration, tracing the fading art of handmade paper across traditional ‘paper countries’ – China, Japan, Korea, and beyond. From mastering origami to uncovering paper’s heritage, her work bridges cultures and epochs. Her portfolio embodies tactile, intellectual, and historical dimensions. Rudanovski’s artistry transforms paper into vessels of culture, history, and philosophy, inviting viewers to traverse from the tangible to the transcendent.

She studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts 1984–1990. An example of her recent work is a series of exhibitions exploring and questioning the meanings of the book as a format, the first of which, ‘Appreciated and Abandoned Books I. The Repository’, was held at the Kondas Centre in 2017, focusing on the fate of thousands of printed reference works. This was followed by “AA II. Vanishing Time (2018), “AA III. The Need to Forget” (2018), “AA IV. Reading I-II” (2021).
