Anna Schimkat is a Leipzig based artist.

In Anna Schimkat's work, scientific research is the processual basis for the formulation of the idea. In each respective context, she is interested in the processes, causes and rules of natural, social and cultural realities. She makes an assertion, observes and examines it. One main focus is her preoccupation with the experience and sensation of space. Another important focus is sound in the context of space and its reverse, space in the context of sound.

With the help of abstraction, Anna Schimkat achieve's the reduction of conceptual preparatory work and arrive's at a generally understandable statement. This creates site-specific, accessible and physically sensual rooms and sound installations that interact with their respective contexts and influence the materials chosen for the installations. The idea qualifies the aesthetics of the work.
