Moshtaghi, Ronak

Installation, Sculpture, Text, Print and More

Ronak works with different media ranging from installation, collage, video to book-media and podcast. Exploring the space between secrecy and frankness and abstraction as a conceptual process have been reappearing themes. Abstraction appears in her work as a resistance to transparency, not to reduce or simplify. She deals with moments where the rudeness of a narration and aggressive silence of an abstract image meet.

In her recent projects, Ronak has worked with sculptural objects inspired by the experience of reading as a performative process and its connection with our understanding of violence.
