Prof. Alexandra Ranner

short vita

Alexandra Ranner is an artist working in the mediums of spatial installations, sculpture, film and photography. In addition to her own practice, since 2007 she is also Professor at the University of the Arts Berlin where she teaches fine arts in the architecture department. She studied at the art academies in Lisbon and Munich. Her works have been distinguished with the HAP-Grieshaber-Award from the VG-BILD-KUNST, the Bavarian Award for Fine Arts, the Munich Award for Fine Arts as well as a fellowship from the Karl-Schmitt-Rottluff Foundation.

Alexandra Ranners work deals with the emotional fault lines of modern times and presents surreal spatial constructs whose tension exists in the ambivalence between their conspicuous artificiality and their atmospheric-emotional density. The constructs are seemingly conceived through the inner emotional conditions of their residents and protagonists; they are a manifestation of certain mental dispositions in the form of spaces.
