Pamela Rosenkranz (*1979) rose to prominence with a conceptual practice that encompasses sculpture, video, installation and painting. Her work questions the subjective element in the apprehension of an artwork, shifting the viewer’s focus toward the material, biochemical and neurological determinants of human behavior. Dubious of a worldview that places human beings at the center of the natural and material universe, the Zurich-based artist has also collaborated with thinkers from the broad philosophical movement known as speculative realism.

Much of Rosenkranz’s critique of anthropocentrism involves an exploration of consumerist attempts to “domesticate” nature. Firm Being (2009–present), for example, probes the marketing strategies employed by mineral water producers: Works in the series consist of Evian, Fiji, and SmartWater-brand PET bottles filled with silicone tinted to match  “Caucasian” skin shades. The material, also known by the brand name Dragon Skin, is used among other things in the manufacture of prostheses and make-up for films. The sculptures satirize the bottlers’ esoteric advertising promises of self-optimization and internal body cleansing by interpreting them literally and presenting perfectly smooth, synthetic skin as the actual contents of the bottle. On another level, their materiality points to the role of plastic bottles in the littering and contamination of the earth’s water cycle: Even the planet’s ecological balance is sacrificed on the altar of purity.

The silicone rubber in Firm Being is also employed in installations including Our Product (2015) and Skin Pool (Oromom) (2019), where it fills entire swimming pools. Its fleshy hue appears again in acrylic pigment applied to large-format paintings—works for which the artist uses such metaphorically-charged materials as emergency blankets or spandex as a painting surface and her own body as a painting tool. Transformed into its complementary color—a specific green that Rosenkranz associates with the color of rainforest flora and chlorocruorin, the oxygen-binding component in the blood of some annelids—it appears in a number of light installations and painted works as well.

A key focus of the artist’s practice is her investigation of objective evolutionary and biological aspects, neurological reactions and psychotropic phenomena that have a far-reaching impact on the aesthetic experience but are traditionally considered part of the “subjective” aspects of artistic creation. A potent example can be seen in Sexual Power (Viagra Paintings) (2014), for which the artist ingested the erectile dysfunction drug and painted large-scale aluminum panels in a vigorous—or virile—style reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism. Works including Infection (2017) incorporate the synthetic feline pheromone civetone to explore the means by which toxoplasmosis (a disease caused by a protozoan parasite and transmitted by cats, among other animals) can imperceptibly alter human behavior and perception.

A number of Rosenkranz’s best-known works deal with the color blue and its use by French artist Yves Klein, among them the video installation The Death of Yves Klein (2011), paintings in the series My Yves Klein Blue (Approaching) (2015), the sculptural Blue Runs (2016) and light installations including Alien Culture (2017). Common to all of these works is a reflection on the early evolutionary and biological formation of the eye’s receptors for blue. It is the millennia-old genetic codes of these receptors that account for the intense aesthetic, quasi-religious experience of color, not the artist subject. Pamela Rosenkranz dissolves habitual cultural coordinates, detaching the viewer from a traditional view of the world that emphasizes human self-referentiality.

Old Tree
High Line, New York
Through September 2024

Sprüth Magers congratulates Pamela Rosenkranz whose monumental sculpture Old Tree was selected for the third High Line Plinth commission in New York, to be unveiled in spring of 2023. The bright red and pink imaginary tree animates a myriad of historical archetypes wherein the tree of life connects heaven and earth while also closely resembling the complex networks of the human circulatory system. Located on the High Line—an urban park built on a relic of industry—and selected from among over 80 international proposals by artists from 40 countries, Old Tree raises questions about the real while simultaneously highlighting a breakdown of the boundary between nature and artifice.

The spectacular color or, to be precise, the wavelengths emitted by Pamela Rosenkranz’s Alien Blue Windows permeate the entire room and pour out of the building. Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to announce a solo exhibition by the artist, showcasing five unique pieces from her enticing series alongside a selection of intricate kirigami works on paper.

October 8–December 22, 2021
London

At her first solo exhibition at Sprüth Magers, London, Pamela Rosenkranz shows sensory and atmospheric works in which light, sound and color play an essential role. On the main floor, visible from outside through the large window front, as if in a terrarium, lives a robotic snake covered with kirigami scales. Shimmering paintings on mirrors and aluminum, painted with semi-transparent pale pink paint, reflect the green light projected from the ceiling. Flickering LED spotlights illuminate seemingly ephemeral objects resting on transparent pedestals. Materiality and message merge. In her oeuvre, Rosenkranz questions the certainties of authentic human experience, perceiving people as permeable membranes at the interface between nature and artificiality. Drawing on themes that we encounter in our everyday, visually overcharged lives, Rosenkranz creates links that allow us to make unexpected connections between objects and ideas, while at the same time unsettling us.

Bringing together the practice of thirteen international artists, the exhibition Dreaming Mirrors Dreaming Screens appeals to the intuitive mind and creativity beyond referential thinking. Departing from the artists' production, it navigates through narratives in the realm of surrealist animation, abstraction and subjects of new materialism embracing the logic of the internet.
