> DESCRIPTION

Rosenkranz manipulates objects and images of contemporary culture in order to activate their contingent evolutionary history. Spandex fabric, canvas, mops, nylon fabrics and refilled Evian water bottles are imprinted, stretched and distorted to produce new, unstable realities. Objects become physical beings with bodily traces of flesh and touch.

The artist’s sculpture series Bow Human will be presented throughout the spaces of the Cunard Building. Ghostly, anthropomorphic presences appear to shelter under emergency blankets hunched as though seeking cover indicating the frailty of the human species. Gold or Silver becoming highly symbolic to an apocalypse of fire or ice.


Pamela Rosenkranz, b. 1979, Sils-Maria, Switzerland, is an artist who lives and works in Berlin and New York. Recent solo exhibitions include Because They Try to Bore Holes (Miguel Abreu, New York, U.S.A., 2012), No Core (Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, Switzerland, 2010) and Our Sun (Istituto Svizzero di Roma, Venice branch, Venice, Italy, 2009).
