Anne Kathrin Achenbach works at the intersection of language, art and community building.
Migration and the effects of displacement and how people communicate across geographic, cultural and social borders is at the heart of her explorations.
Her main interests are the variations and nuances of how people encode, decode and interact with their world and how memories, emotions and stories are shared with others. Anne Kathrin works with textiles as a universal language that we all share. She offers a regular communal practice of creative mending in diverse and intergenerational settings weaving together people and stories.
In her own practice Anne Kathrin translates experiences and memories into textile works applying traditional and innovative ways of using everyday materials.
