Atelier Sandra Ackermann
For 20 years my artistic practice has evolved around monitoring and reflecting the media profile our society creates of itself.
My media are painting, drawing and collage.
I research fashion, lifestyle, architecture and design to detect trends and also observe global political developments. I scan my environment to combine my findings into an emotional visual reflection.
Some of my work directly relates to society-wide issues like the finacial crisis, the refuge crisis, digitalisation, the London riots and the beginning of the Ukraine war. Other parts of my work look at more subtle socio-cultural tendencies such as isolation, disrupted personal spaces or inner-personal conflicts that feed from increasingly more complex realities.
The core aspects of my work revolves around the question of what reality actually is and what is the real truth.
I question what is individually sensed, what is socially noticeable, what is depicted in the media and what is stored in our memory.
