Running Apart is made for the window of Berlin-Weekly. The viewer perceives a spatial composition of several pictorial surfaces inside through the window. The centre of the image is a quotation from a drawing by Kandinsky materialised as lines of light. An automated pulling device changes the space and influences the view of the viewer. In a 4-minute interval, a transparent picture surface is pulled up and obscures his view. The result is a moving painting.

Acrylic paint and silkscreen on textiles, draped on wooden frames, with pulling devices, as curtain, with body performance, 1000 x 5080 x 330 cm, saasfee*pavillon, Frankfurt a.
The exhibition MODEST MONUMENTS was supported by the Cultural Office of the City of Frankfurt am Main and the Hessian Ministry for Science and Art.
The performance is the opening event of the MODEST MONUMENTS exhibition at the sassfee*pavillon in Frankfurt am Main.
The performance is a dependent, yet self-dynamic part of the spatial installation. A person walks for 60 minutes masquerading van Reimersdahl's space installation AD HOC (to this one) and the adjoining outdoor space. She pauses before the viewer's eyes and demonstrates the mobility of the drapes. At times her appearance fuses with the spatial installation. In the outside space, her figure appears surreal. Occasionally she seeks the closeness of the visitors. The human body is the vehicle on which the fabrics become threedimensional and mobile. Their appearance and their seemingly automated procedure attract the viewer's attention. An obvious documentation is part of the event.

Commission, Curtains for Concept Store
Leisure Center is a multi-label store for avant-garde fashion design in Vancouver. The space extends over 2000m2 on two floors. In cooperation with Caspar Mueller Kneer Architects a design concept for curtains was developed. From three different fabric qualities, I developed an idea for each floor. The sewn surface was hand-printed in screen technique in Berlin. The graphic design is based on digital drawings. Lines compress or disperse in waves. Printing is done over seams. Unprinted passages alternate with printed ones across the entire width of up to 38 meters. A black-and-white contrast interacts with the transparency of the fabric in interplay with light and shadow. The surface treatment of the textiles makes the curtains unique. Their technical function is sound absorption, daylight regulation and visual protection.

Codes and Characters
acrylic paint & silkscreen on textiles, digital print on curtain, with performance, 400 x 400 x 400 cm, Benhadj&Djilali Gallery, Berlin
The spatial work Codes and Characters by Andrea van Reimersdahl cover room corners and walls and spans an amorphous structure of graphics in the middle of the room. The viewer is forced to make his way through it to reach the rear exhibition space.
A performance marks the start of the group exhibition Open Pieces in the Benhadj&Djilali Gallery. An exposed figure and a photographer move through the exhibition over a period of 60 minutes. The exhibition space and the adjoining outdoor space extend the radius of the textile room installation beyond the gallery space. Treated textiles are presented to performers and photographers as clothing. The figure pauses on her way at various stations. The photographer captures these moments as facets of space and time. Meanwhile, the viewer is in the center of the action.

ESCAPES Performance As part of the SLIGHT SHOW exhibition at Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz, an excerpt of the ESCAPES screen-print edition is shown as a staged performance.
The figure, as an exhibit, wears clothing from the edition of hand-made, one-off screen-printed pieces. For a period of 60 minutes, she paces through the exhibition space and the adjoining outside space. Like an algorithm that measures space in stages with the scale of time, the figure pauses at various stations of its performed trajectory. Visible to the visitors, she pauses, motionless, like a sculpture. The person is present but, with her head mask, denies the visitor direct eye contact. The almost mechanical performance, between movement and standstill, is repeated in rhythmic sequence.

Textile paintings are fitted into the exhibition space in the manner of walls, tracing the existing architecture. Softness and lightness cover solidity and density. Modular mobile textile paintings create a spatial atmosphere defined by the language of material. Fabric and printed graphics meld into a contrasting overall composition. The play of light and shadow is emphasised by transparency and density of the material. The visitor moves about in an abstract spatial imagery.
A cycle of drawings, FIELDS 01-04, appears between the solid and the textile walls. Quantities of lines proliferate in dynamic movement in front of a grid backdrop. Ink and pencil on paper, 01-04, 42x29cm.

Andrea van Reimersdahl paints in multi-dimensions. Titled “Identity sucks,” she visualizes the notion of moving images interacting above and beyond the exhibition space. In the photograph, the artist depicts herself wrapped in her own paintings. Her identity vanishes and the abstract materials begin to shape. Textures, colors, and materials literally become the artist, and this is how she communicates with her audience.

Thin ice, 2014 by Andrea van Reimersdahl combines aestheticized abstract natural textile print shapes with the carrier material. The staging of the translucent images at the glass facade of the gallery causes the interior and exterior to melt into each other, the boundary becoming diffuse. The amorphous draping of the materials guides the view to the textile painting with its loose hanging, which oscillates between obscuring and revealing.

Edition Escapes (112)
silk screen one-off pieces, Andrea van Reimersdahl & Ivonne Dippmann, Berlin/Tel Aviv
The objective of ESCAPES is to enable the cooperation of two artists at the interface of art and fashion. The analogue production approach of this project forms a clear counter-position to mass production and cut-price textile products in the context of contemporary production structures. ESCAPES places Tel Aviv and Berlin in context as urban action spaces in the form of a dialogue, and thereby merges these socially and politically different "landscapes" into one object.

With the idea of an extended painting on the human body or art to wear, by painted and printed fabrics, I founded the art fashion label "van reimersdahl berlin". I worked under it for over 10 years with international success (2003-2013).
All subsequent works in this period are activities of the label and took place in cooperation with interns and assistants from the fields of art and design.

Trendvision 2004 - Fashion_Art_Installation Group show Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin 17.01 - 29.02.2004
An exhibition of the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien. The two fashion designers and artists from Friedrichshain, Nina Hein (Die Profis) and Ane Lokken (Trendvision), will address the relationship between art and fashion with this exhibition project.
On the search for new forms of expression in fashion, on the borderline between art and dress, artists and fashion designers are invited to experiment with textile materials, physicality and formal language. Innovative forms of presentation and encounters with fashion will be presented that go far beyond conventional forms of presentation. The six-week exhibition will be complemented by a media lounge in which a broad spectrum of digital works, not only by the participating artists, will be shown.
Artists: +Laboratory (Dk), Art Point (Ru), Manuel Bonik (D), Anne Dettmer (D), Amit Epstein (Il), Undine Goldberg (D) Nina Hein (D), Ivana Helsinki (Fi), It's fashion darling (Dk), Andrea Kroth (D), little red riding hood (D), Tatjana Lyng & Sonja Thomsen (Dk), membran (D), ping pong (Ch), pureculture (LV), Bettina Saul (D), Florinda Schnitzel (D), Jacqueline Steinmetz (D), Treuka (D), Andrea van reimersdahl (D), VBL (It, GB, D), Henrik Vibskov (Dk), ping pong (Ch), membran (D) Curators: Nina Hein and Ane Løkken
