Alexandra Ranner is Professor for Sculpture, and through her installations and architectural models, develops creative discourses on questions of membership rituals within cities, interactivity, identity formation as well as the notion of the space of digital production and analog production. In her recent solo exhibition, the performative installation Karmakollaps at the Berlin Georg Kolbe Museum (2016/2017), PI Ranner blurs the boundaries of the space of the viewer and that of the actors performing within the installation. As is found between the realm of the digital and the actual, the connection of real space and fictitious space in Karmakollaps is a fluid one and is used to form the concept of the limits of pictorial space, and the idea that a thinking system emerges from such conditions.
