Renate Brink

The multilayered space of the city and the notion of –˜soft space' inform the work of Renata Brink. The city as a place of passage and the physical experiences of moving through its complexities evoke ideas about the invisible, absence and presence, inclusion and exclusion. The site-specific installations and interventions often have sequential, graphic or minimalist qualities and they are variable in their dimensions.
