Drawing influence from Sister Mary Corita, Andrea Büttner uses a variety of mediums and techniques to reference religious and spiritual themes in her practice. Until recently, she focused on the traditional technique of woodblock prints, mixing religious imagery with aphorisms like “I don’t know what to do” or “No fear, no shame, no confusion,” and using a rough style. In her more recent performance and video pieces, Büttner has explored similar subject matter, as in the video Little Works (2007), where Büttner edited footage that a Carmelite nun named Sister Luke filmed within her convent, documenting the sisters making various small crafts by hand. In the performance piece, Fallen lassen (Letting Fall) (2010), Büttner enacted audience suggestions on how one might demonstrate an “affirmative attitude to falling.”
