Andrea Büttner (b. 1972 / Stuttgart, Germany) lives and works in London (GB) and Berlin (DE). She studied at the Royal College of Art, London, Humboldt University of Berlin and Berlin University of the Arts.

Recent group shows include Documenta 13 (2012); Broken White, Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, Netherlands (2016), and British Art Show 8, UK touring exhibition (2016). In 2017, she has presented solo exhibitions at the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen (CH) and Hammer Art Museum, Los Angeles (US), among others. She is one of the four finalists of Turner Prize 2017, the most prestigious award in UK. Andrea Büttner’s diverse practice encompasses printmaking, sculpture, painting, film and collaborative projects. Her subjects are equally broad ranging, exploring topics including botany, Catholicism, philosophy and art history. She often references other artists and thinkers including HAP Grieshaber, Immanuel Kant, Gwen John, Martin Kippenberger, Dieter Roth and Simone Weil. Büttner was first celebrated for her bold use of what is often seen as unfashionable media, namely woodcut and glass painting. Ideas of shame, vulnerability, poverty and embarrassment run throughout her work, countering the romantic and heroic nature associated with much artistic practice. Büttner frequently references the limitations of the body, often painting the gallery walls as high as she can reach and using materials known for their fragility such as unfired clay. In a recent body of work the artist has transcribed the smudges left behind on her iPhone screen into colourful etchings that recall mid-century Gestural Abstraction. Once again the overlooked and undervalued is brought into the physical gallery space, giving care and attention to a residual mark left by a human body on a digital device.
