"Osservando il lavoro di Anna Willieme, quindi, ci si troverà in presenza di un progetto complesso fondato sull'evocazione onirica ma solo all'interno
di un vuoto virtuale, una traslazione spaziale che si propone come utopia reale, definita, determinata dal contrasto interno dei propri segni,
lo stesso contrasto che imponendo all'osservatore la pausa, l'attesa, tramuta il suo silenzioso comunicare in astrazione concreta, estetica".

"Travel is a central theme in my work. Suitcases, airports, maps, astronomical images and dreams act as symbols of travel representing inner and outer explorations and metaphorical itineraries".
