    Andrea Wilmsen - Otium - Negotium - May 13th to June 24th, 2012

    “Otium-Negotium” is a narrative cycle of photographs reflecting Berlin-based artist Andrea Wilmsen’s expression of two seemingly contradictory collections of images, one series of nature, the other of urban photographs. Andrea Wilmsen approaches both sides of human nature through her own direct perception: the longing for stillness reflected through nature and the perpetual push to be driven by movement and excitement through urban life. www.andrea-wilmsen.de
