Why are you? Why? Are you? – I’ve been lost, found myself again and got lost again. What saves me every time is my mind, wandering towards a state of artistic creation, saving me from drowning. Creating helps me cope – the pain, as something negative, turns into art – the most positive source I have known. I have something to tell and I want to communicate it. To speak or to break – I choose to thrive. How I narrate my own life, how much emotional pain impacts it and how the private becomes relevant for the public. The pain makes me dive into my mind’s deep waters and I experience new ways depicting it. My art is my exit plan. Maybe pain doesn’t create creativity. But it allows feelings and gives them a voice.
Please meet Anna - an analogue artist in a digital age. Not exactly the most extroverted kid around, she finds her own retreat in art. Born and raised in Vienna, Anna-Maria Krenkel left her home at the age of eighteen to study photography in Berlin and pursue a career as a photographer. She started working in the realm of fashion and shifted her interest increasingly towards people and their portrayal. Furthermore, she is a director for film and video, expanding the means of expressing herself. Through her art, she is constantly experimenting with the medium and her own perception of the world.
On a moon, hopefully my own.
Staying sane, honestly.
You. Me. And everything in between.
Хващам, инкубирам и го пускам да лети.
I am me now. I don't think I was me before. Maybe I was. But the me now really feels like me.
