Andrea Wilmsen is a Berlin based photographer, currently living between Berlin and Barcelona. Details of the everyday, the hidden and the overlooked are topics of her work. Structure and minimalism are recurring elements. By depicting the usual in an unusual way Andrea questions the idea of perception with its conditions and subjectivity. Her work has been shown internationally in solo and group exhibitions in California, Berlin and Spain and at art fairs in Italy, France and Switzerland. Her project "Berlin meets Los Angeles" was discussed in the art and architecture magazine domus. The University of Fine Arts in Salzburg offered her a grant in 2017. The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) initiated the platform and included a selection of Andrea´s works in the prestigious catalouge of Catalan photography.
