Interview: Astrid Charlotte Wintgens

Astrid Charlotte Wintgens was born in Düsseldorf, Germany. She graduated in Textile Design and Art. She is currently working as an artist in Switzerland and Germany. Besides that, she assisted in stage design and the creation of costumes for actors in London. The fabulous textures and hues of her artworks result in an elegant style that only vaguely hints at decorations. Astrid Charlotte’s goal is to capture emotional and impressive moments on photo and in painting. She enjoys working with different materials and techniques, always curious for new styles. One recent example of a promising combination is digital photography with handcraft. Astrid Charlotte Wintgens exhibited in Vienna, Venice, Milan, Buenos Aires and in Düsseldorf.

Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of RITUALS – ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL?

Astrid Charlotte Wintgens – I chose this artwork for the category Rituals. For me, the cross symbol signifies awareness for the relationship between all entities. I add a handcrafted layer of wax on top of the collage. I chose this feature because wax is an essential organic composition. The material is an outcome of a symbiosis of mankind and ecosystems. Furthermore, it gives the picture a blurry detail, which adds another layer and deeper sense.

L. C. – What do you think about the concept of this event? In which way did inspire you?

A. C. W. – This is an interesting concept, I like the theme of this Art festival very much, the place, and that it is going-on during the 57th Venice Art Biennale. I like all the possibility to meet so many artists. And the atmosphere in the Palazzo was great and all people are open mind.

L. C. – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

A. C. W. – Anima Mundi Rituals, the topic of the art festival in venice. In german, the word ritual can also be understood as a sort of repeating tradition. In this context I dedicate my artwork to a long friendship. Our “ritual” to regulary go by train to Paris for a weekend. I created this image last year and it contains different elements from Paris.

L. C. – Did you style change over the years? How?

A. C. W. – Yes, my style is changing. Life is always a movement. Life is changing and we are changing. My Art is a way to express myself in different ways. First my work basically on photography but now I like it to experiment with it. I am combining both digital and traditional methods in my work. Almost four years ago I moved to Suisse to live near the lake and the mountains, and this influenced me, that’s reflected in my artworks. To live in two different countries and different languages help me not to stop to be creative.

L. C. – Which are your artistic projects for the future? Is there any possibilities for a new participation in some Italian exhibitions?

A. C. W. – I have begun to work with objects and I am very excited about the result. I hope to show it!

L. C. – Would you suggest cooperating with us? What do you think about It’s LIQUID Group and our services?

A. C. W. – I’m very satisfied with this Organisation and I’m looking forward to work in future with It’s Liquid Group.

L. C. – Do you think that this experience could be useful for artists and can contribute to increase personal background?

A. C. W. – The sharing of information could have positive influence on ones’ artistic growth, although to extend the networking all over the world.
