I'd love to HEAR FROM YOU!

Anita_Ackermann

“What I am trying to convey to you is more mysterious, it is entwined in the very roots of being, in the impalpable source of sensations.” 

J. Gasquet Cézanne 

Anita Ackermann pursues a precarious quest for an unforgettable feeling. She beseeches an emancipated audience, actors of their own right to whom unveil a sensation that goes beyond the mere sensual experience. Her research epitomizes the unseen together with the seen, the capacity of light of both embodiment and intangibility.  

She reflects upon the consciousness of an open-ended version of a world in flux - studying the mutual application of seeing upon being seen, and vice-versa. As Merleau-Ponty explains in Eye and Mind: each object mirrors all others. Through her installations, light, materiality and presence become the players of a game that revolves around the inner awareness of the self and the subjectivity of our own reality. Her work reveals a profound grasp of the active dimension of perception, where our body is implied in a provisional, indeterminate construction of reality.

Anita Ackermann 

(born in Mainz, Germany)

Lives and works in Berlin

Graduated from the University of the Arts (UdK) in Berlin, the German­-Romanian artist mainly works in the field of sculpture and installation art in order to research three-dimensionality as well as light as a medium, and  to explore different ways to perceive time and space. Her interest lies in transforming space through minimal changes and evoking a change in perception. Ackermann also often focuses on the viewer’s experience by actively incorporating the audience into her work.
