Anna Andrea Winther

Visual Artist

Born 1993 from Reykjavik, Iceland

Currently based in Glasgow, Scotland

In Anna Winther's artistic practice she looks to deconstruct various phenomenon’s within Icelandic-and western food production.  She explores these products through the industrial processes they are subjected to in comparison to their natural origins, materiality and their connection to human history. 

In these works Anna tries to bring about the question of how we can re-connect with our food and therefor nature.
