In her work, experimental artist Anja Asche subtly explores the fragility and transience of identity. In doing so, she also explores the question of the extent to which the individual is influenced by the environment and by social norms:
“I am particularly interested in the limitations and stereotypes to which women are subjected. My personal life path is … the starting point for my artistic investigations. This is where the Cordts Art Foundation program comes in.”
During her residency, Anja Asche will work with unusual materials such as gel wax, petri dishes and natural found objects – for example, seeds, branches, grasses. In doing so, she aims for large-scale yet delicate works and installations.
