Andrea Gohl is a visual artist based in Zurich, Switzerland. She has produced photographic works, video essays and artist’s publications reflecting on distinct sites, urban experiences and possible realtionships to place.
Her work explores visual layers of places, as well as the intertwining of narratives focusing on select sites and
in-betweens within both personal and public realms. Her projects have unfolded in cities such as New York, London, Turin or Zurich. Various modes of documentation, annotation and research come into play in her practice.
While the individual layers of the work can be explored autonomously, the potentially divergent leads can inform each other, shift, and redirect our attention and awareness for individual contexts and framings.
Andrea Gohl studied photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City where she lived for 10 years. She gained her Master in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London, in the UK. Since 2017, she is the head of studies and professor at the MA Contemporary Arts Practice at Bern Academy of the Arts.
