Info

Andrea van Reimersdahl understands painting as a body-related medium.
Influenced by her interest in fashion, costume and stage design, she experiments with the relationship between body, silhouette, space and identity.

She combines classical painting techniques with processing techniques from the garment industry, such as applications, rough cuts, and textile treatments.

The artist presents her paintings spatial, in kinetic installations, in body performances or photo series. Her aim is to foreground the feminine identity and the body as an actor in painting.

In 2004 she received her master's degree in painting with Prof. Katharina Grosse at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin. Adopting the idea of a wearable painting on the human body, she founded the fashion label van reimersdahl berlin. Since 2014, art institutions such as Galerie Ursula Walter in Dresden, Saasfee*Pavillon in Frankfurt a. M. and Künstlerforum Bonn have exhibited her work. She was awarded project fundings and prizes by the Hans and Charlotte Krull Foundation, the Hessian Ministry of Culture, and the Reclaim Award, among others. During her artistic career, there have been numerous international collaborations with designers and architects.
