Sanna Reitz (DE)

Sanna Reitz (b. 1985, Kaiserslautern) lives and works in Karlsruhe. In 2016 she completed her studies in painting/graphics at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe as a master student of Leni Hoffmann. Her works have been shown in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad. In 2023 she will be supported with a working scholarship from the Stiftung Kunstfonds.

"Mountains, valleys, meadows, forests -seemingly untouched natural spaces- the cliché of the idyll, these are the places and thoughts in which I seek to intervene. Landmarks that draw or undermine the boundary between nature and culture. The absurdity of human effort to nurture and care for, to map and market, to collect and order, to produce and control, to preserve and destroy all the diversity of life is demonstrated and ironized. The concept of home and the associated art product of untouched and unchanging nature, sublime nature and bland design, are confronted. The question of a nature aesthetic in times of the Anthropocene arises.

I construct sceneries that emphasize and potentiate the artificiality in nature that has been fabricated by humans. With manipulations of color and form, the manipulation of nature in favor of human dimensions of measurement, imagination and expectation is questioned from a new perspective."
