Andrea van Reimersdahl is a visual artist in Berlin.
From 2002 to 2012 she worked interdisciplinarily in the fields of drawing, textile printing, fashion and performance. She developed own fashion editions, which were internationally distributed as handprinted silkscreen one-offs. Since 2013, her work and exhibition activities have focused on visual arts in the fields of installation, performance, drawing, printmaking and painting.


"The potential of an artpiece is subtlety."

(Wikipedia: subtle, latin subtilis „fine, thin, slender“.
Etymology: Latin from sub + tēla (“a web”))

Andrea van Reimersdahl`s spatial installations are site-specific. Her work is the possibility of a space-time experience for herself and the viewer. In a structure of material, light and movement, surfaces and lines are related to each other like in a spatial drawing. Her methods are darkening, blurring, bending, draping and illuminating in order to make the installation space sensually perceptible. An imaginary space becomes reality in contrast to the static (exhibition) space.

Lines and surfaces are the basics for Andrea van Reimersdahl to transport her ideas into space - within the installations and in independent works. The results are, for emample, monochrome paintings or linear aluminium objects. Material, technique and texture may differ. Colorless light-dark contrasts are a counterposition to everyday color stimulations. Visual perception is limited. Seeing only contrasts, textures and lines comes from a black and white imagination world.
