ART ENCOUNTERS | Appearance & Essence | 3-31 OCTOBER 2015 TIMISOARA | ARAD
Anca Munteanu Rimnic develops ideas from everyday encounters, giving evidence of her visual or allegorical approach to things. She enables viewers to not only see connections vis-à-vis logic and historicality, she also enables them to grasp this relationship in its brittleness and absurdity. Anca Munteanu Rimnic operates with poetic yet precisely set sculptural gestures that oscillate between onset and completion and between space and object, and which ultimately concentrate on the process of creation itself. Her objects, videos, and installations address experience and recurrent recollection as aesthetic concepts yet they never lose their sketchiness, they rather transform it into strength.
Anca Munteanu Rimnic (*1974, lives in Berlin) was born in Romania; at the age of six, she immigrated to Germany with her parents. She studied art at the Universität der Künste, Berlin, and studied under John Baldessari at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Mike Kelley and Jack Goldstein at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She has been internationally represented in several international group shows, among others at the Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich (2011), at the 4th Moscow Biennale (2011), at the Kunsthalle Vienna (2014), at Kunstverein Braunschweig 2015.
