Kerstin Ergenzinger (DE)
Is an artist working in the fields of installation, electronic arts/new media and drawing. Her works explore the sensory and conceptual relationships between the individual and its physical surroundings. By focusing on processes of perception, on technologies and strategies applied in spatial and mental navigation and the production of knowledge, she investigates the limits of human perception and our capacity to comprehend and interpret our environment. How do you move in the world, and how does that feel? How does your body relate to other bodies and to its surroundings, and how can you define the coordinates of our own position? In response to these fundamental questions, she develops in her works diverse points of view that play with the opposition between metaphorical distance and physical immediacy. Alongside her studio practice she is frequently involved in collaborative projects and research projects in other fields such as dance, music, film and science.
