Andrea is a German/ British artist, photographer and virtual reality creator who holds an MFA from the University of Leeds. Her work has emerged out of photography’s expanded field & incorporates installation, sculpture, photography, collage, video & virtual reality. In her immersive installations photographic portraits are folded in the third dimension in a playful way and give rise to filigree, nearly weightless objects, space occupations and conceptual spaces.
In her recent solo exhibition Ghost Weight Experience (2021), she explores ideas around death, memorialization and photography and uses sound & animation to invite the viewer to understand the photographic image in a contemporary setting such as virtual reality.
