Nanne Meyer

A postcard from NANNE MEYER, sent from Japan, where she currently travels. Nanne is a Berlin based artist, born 1953 in Hamburg. She studied at the HfbK Hamburg. After here studies she was awarded a DAAD Stipend in London, where she studied animation at the Saint Martins School of Art. In 1986–87 she was awarded with a one-year stipend at the Deutsche Akademie Villa Massimo in Rome, after which she lived in Frankfurt/Main for several years. In 1993 she moved to Berlin, where since 1994 she teaches as Professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee. In 2013 she received the women artists' prize NRW for drawing and in 2014 the Hannah-Höch Preis in Berlin. Nanne is one of the first women artists of the postwar generation who works primarily in drawing. La Grand Dame of German drawing!

"Fernweh Good Life From Japan! I hope my Japanese with the Fuji rock will reach you at far away Nebraska. You don't necessarily have to move mountains. If you dress as a rock (German: rock=skirt) the mountains  move along with you. This way heaviness becomes ease - if that is not the good life!" Nanne's and my paths cross quite often - always when it comes to drawing-related exhibitons and tand events. Nanne has also been invited to damensalon, where we spent a nice and long evening with Stefka Ammon, Veronike Hinsberg, Inken Reinert, Eva-Christina Meier, Nina Torwart and Kertin Gottschalk. A night of meadering talking about meandering drawing and other things, over a delicious dinner and some drinks. http://nannemeyer.de
