STANDARD (OSLO) is proud to announce an exhibition of new works by Anna Zacharoff. Entitled “I'm Flattened to Be Asked” it is comprising of eleven paintings and three sculptures. 

1. Listen: easier said than done, and that's exactly the point
2. Agreement: say yes and add something, don't reject ideas
3. Team Work: have a group mind, think of others
4. Don't Block: stealing jokes / not listening / changing topic
5. Relationship: focus on connection between characters, not just subject of scene
6. Initiation: who, what, when to set the scene
7. Point of View, Opinion and Intention: have them, these help express and build your character
8. Be in Character: maintain character throughout the scene
9. Don't Ask Questions: too many questions can make your partner do all the work
10. Make Active Choices: do something, don't be talking heads
 

The artist would like to thank the following for providing the source material for the exhibition: Ranzieh Baj, Helga Bärnarp, Andreas Fägerskiöld, Paul Fägerskiöld, Anna Goetz, Dani Leder, Lorenz Pammer, George Rippon, Laurie Rippon, Elif Saydam, Joel Stenmark, Siri Areyuna Wilhelmsson and Reece York.
