Work from her oeuvre.
“Whilst basically Rosenkranz’s œuvre walks a tight conceptual line, the artist’s practice features a lightness of touch, that belies the use of irony, play and humor in its making. In general, Rosenkranz’s works speak of a mercurial élan, an “inform” physicality and a pervasive sense of “mise en scene”. These distinct but intertwined notions frame the artist’s practice, directed to ponder upon a contemporary understanding of nihilism. Indeed, she investigates the possibilities of reducing the meaning of an art work down to its limit, converting her pieces into mercurial paradigms, where meaning slips through the fingers of those wishing to apprehend it. To do so Rosenkranz arms herself with immaterial parameters, such as reflections, repetitions, infinite loops, voids, crossings and obliterations. ” – The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève
