Annie Morris was born in 1978 in London, where she still lives and works. Between 1997 and 1998, she studied at Foundation, St. Martins College of Art and Design. In 1998, she started her experience at Giuseppe Penone’s Studio and then attended the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In the period between 2002 and 2003, she completed her academic career at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art. In 2000, she won the Homer Scholarship Award, and in 2002, she received an award for her drawing skills from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. It was 2003 when Morris came into the public eye for her collaboration with her longtime friend Sophie Dahl (granddaughter of the famous British children’s writer Roald Dahl) on the book, Man with the Dancing Eyes.
Morris has stated that she does not feel attached to a singular medium, and prefers to characterize her work as usually made up of lots of smaller pieces that come together to make one big piece. Among her best-known works are painting-sculptures composed of individually painted wooden clothespins; in 2006, Burberry commissioned her to make a dress in the same format. In 2012, Morris and her husband, the artist Idris Kahn, collaborated on a project using Comme des Garçon wallets. Since 2004, her works have been displayed in several solo exhibitions, There Is A Land Called Loss, Pertwee Anderson and Gold Gallery, London, 2012; Annie Morris, Winston Wächter, New York, 2010; When A Happy Thing Falls, Allsopp Contemporary, London; When A Happy Thing Falls, Jeannie Frielich Contemporary, New York, 2007; Annie Morris, Lightbox Gallery, Los Angeles, 2006; Annie Morris: Glass Paintings, Postcards, Thomas Williams Gallery, London; Annie Morris, Laura Bartlett Gallery, London, 2005; Annie Morris (curated by Nick Hackworth), The Adams Street Club, London; The Man With The Dancing Eyes, Daniel Katz Gallery, 2004. Moreover, her artworks are already part of a certain number of international art collections such as The Cranford Collection, London; The Colorado University Museum, Colorado; The Gersh Collection, Los Angeles; Nat Rothchild, New York; Maleki, London; Alexand Guy Delall, London; Lucy Liu, New York; Janger, Los Angeles; Victoria and Warren Miro, London; Maryam Eisler, London; Norman Rosenthal, London; Raqib Shaw, London.
Morris is currently showing at the Winston Wächter in New York City and the Project B Gallery in Milano. Many of her works have been installed in Peter Marino's renovation of the Louis Vuitton Place Vendôme headquarters.
