anna andrejew - artistic researcher, writer, permaculturalist.

through my artistic research, i explore the memory of matter. my work takes form in the material and immaterial: installations, photography, conversations, performances and writing.

previously i have worked in the humanitarian aid sector, experiencing many places. since 2019 i decided to fully focus on my process-oriented artistic practice.

based in the hague, the netherlands.

currently i am researching the physicality of the digital. each e-mail, each bit of data is stored somewhere physically. cables below, data centers above. taking up energy, water and space. the digital world is firmly rooted in ecology. this project was part of the 2024 graduation show of KABK.

another ongoing research explores fermentation as a way of being with others. celebrating our ancestor’s traditions and interdependencies on micro-organisms. Micro-cultures having major impact on our body, food sovereignty and communal being.

i employ an ecofeminist lens and multispecies perspectives. my previous researches included themes connected to soil, water bodies (commissioned by NWO), the non-binary/more-than-human, our perception of time and expanding our notion of photography (beyond its humancentric conventions).
