Annekatrin Lemke

My studio is my workshop.

What I do in one sentence: Wood carving and painting, visualizing connections, relationships, crosslinks and influences.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: It’s the most proper job I can imagine.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: A walk-in artwork made of wood, fluorescent acrylic glass and neon lights, transforming peoples hatred into kindness.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): There are so many – Agnes Martin, Etel Adnan and Rachel Whiteread for example.

I am afraid of the loss of humanity and kindness in the society.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I would prefer a tree instead of a stone. This time no wood carving needed!
