Anne Kranenborg’s playground explorets the full extent of the intertwined art and design field. Multi-disciplary works are questioning our direct environment in a way to comprehend the abstract domain of value. The minimalistic appearance of her work attributes to this by asking when something reaches a final state or hovers pre- or post- prototype.

Through her experimental material scenario’s she investigates the autonomy of materials and their role in the (mental and sensoric) construction of a privatory environment. 
She uses both the private and urban arena to unfold atmospheres and thereby states of the mind.

‘My practice revolves around staging materials as a fundamental language to explore the role of “the object” in the construction of circumstances, power relations and the formation of the sense of place. By varying in scale such as installations, objects and two dimensional work; enables me to elaborate different positions on how a negotiation with a human presence is taking shape. We experience matter as something we are able to hold. Although our own body is the first matter we “Be” and always are integrating. There is always some conversation going on about an arena versus matter. Physical matter to tangible matter is – among other things – a means to question and alter the role of objectified materials in the one-sided projection of a monologue they are usualy subjected to.
My investigative expressions become tools to understand large scale phenomena and sculpt incitements to shape new notions.’
