German artist Rona Rangsch, born in 1969, first studied mathematics and physics in Saarbrücken and Cologne (1989 - 1996), then later attended the Academy of Arts in Düsseldorf (1999) and the ca.medien.colleg Essen (2000-2001). Currently, she is expanding her studies through an interdisciplinary doctoral program at the University of Newfoundland (having started in 2018). Today she lives and works in her adopted home of St. John's in Newfoundland as well as in Dortmund.
Interplay of physics and art
In her artistic work, Rona Rangsch unites the seemingly opposite disciplines of her studies. She uses different types of media, such as video, installation, graphics or photography. Rangsch addresses geographical, socio-cultural or historical issues, most recently having focused on the Europe-North America axis. Her approach is reminiscent of scientific methods and reveals previously invisible issues.
