Anna Virnich

Anna Virnich (1984, Berlin) lives and works in Berlin. Her artistic practice has recently focused on producing works that incorporate found fabrics as well as new textiles, which the artist stretches on wooden frames to create organic and almost painterly compositions that oscillate between transparency and density, foreground and background. Working with different textiles and textures, Virnich emphasizes traces of past use on the cloth – weather stains, dirt marks, human sweat. She then manipulates the fabric, leaving gaps, flaws, seams and sometimes adding fragrances to the fabric. The bodily and physical aspects of the work are crucial, as is the element of fetish. The constant flux in the working process between adding and withdrawing, disclosing and concealing reveals itself in Virnich’s tableaus.
