Patricia Dreyfus (born in 1951, has been living and working in Berlin since 2012) began working as a documentary filmmaker in France in 1972 (until 1992), focusing on subjects related to art, music and business. From 1982 to 1984, she trained in fine art, first in the studio of Gregory Mazurovsky at the Centre Américain in Paris, then at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, also in Paris. Before moving the main focus of her life to Berlin in 2012, she lived from 1992 to 2012 in Basel, where she concentrated fully on broadening her artistic oeuvre, which from 2009 onwards was shown in exhibitions in Switzerland, the USA, France, Austria and Germany. Her works were included, among others, in group exhibitions in the Kunsthalle Basel, the Kunsthalle Mulhouse and the Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg, Germany. Her most recent solo exhibition is lettre à moi-même #3 (till May 2, 2021) in Wolfenbüttel Kunstverein, and in Galerie Albrecht in Berlin lettre à moi-même #2 (2021), which was preceded by her exhibition lettre à moi-même #1 (2019) in Mesmer Galerie in Basel, Switzerland.
