Construction as site and as process are two intersected, although diverse, sets of ideas and actions. In “meditations: on site, subject and samples”, Randi Renate explores the language of architectural objects and construction materials. The 20 objects present were individually sculptured from black ceramic in a meticulous exercise of proportion, angles and smooth surfaces. Within this handmade process, she immerses herself into the construction process of creating objects that echo their real industrial counterparts.
Randi Renate (1991, San Antonio, Texas, US) is a sculptor and multi media artist. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin 2014 with a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Philosophy, she moved to Berlin where she has been living and working since. She has exhibited multiple solo installations in the United States and Germany including group exhibitions in Berlin and Texas. Randi believes that every architect secretly dreams of being a sculptor and vice versa. This fall, she will begin her MFA in the sculpture department at Yale University.
