The collages of Anys Reimann are affect-laden.
They encourage you to touch the sensual materials (suede, smooth leather, fur, etc.), they seduce you with hints of false leads and are sexy.
The snippets of skin, body fragments, hair… are often combined and completed by paintings, arranged with a strange laconicness that suggests a brisk throwing down, which it certainly is not.
The content is about identity as a human being (self-confident and proud – not lamenting), and the deconstruction (and sometimes back to synthesising) of objects and bodies.
Thomas Grünfeld

Reimann creates an understanding of identity through the overlapping of materialities, forms, contents and also sensory experiences, which considers hybridity as a fundamental form of construction. Layers of meanings permeate both her painterly and sculptural works, whether fantastical, figurative or abstract.
