Born in 1974 in Roskilde, Denmark
Lives and works in CopenhagenPia Rönicke's videos are collages of heterogeneous sounds and images offering a commentary on urban structure and the modernist conception of the city and the environment. Like samplings, these videos designate and underscore the points as film music, photos, comics, images from magazines and her own drawings of cityscapes and gardens. This film work should be read as a permanently evolving composition in which each part is at once autonomous and constitutes a global narrative on the space of living, on the relation between nature and culture, and on architecture as camouflage. While re-visiting the experiments of the 1920s and the critical montage tradition of the 1960s and 1970s, Rönicke's work is at the same time articulated around highly contemporary questions.
