Artist in Residence – Angelika Rauf

Angelika Rauf graduated in 2014 from the University of Art in Braunschweig. After that, she became a master-student of Ayse Erkmen at the Münster Academy of Fine Arts. She engages herself in physical drawings, ceramics, casts, paper and sound.

During her stay at NES she wants to draw on her work Miura-Ori by using the technique of the making molds to reproduce nature and to transform it using the media of drawing and sculpture; to create a new surface through the transformation of the material, thus giving the viewer a feeling of an “extended surface”. Molds made of plaster and paper are intended to direct focus to the surface and thus to sharpen and enlarge the view. The imprints should not be a copy of the natural surface, but rather become an independent landscape/surface in order to initiate thinking processes which help to get another point of view and show something more than the mere visible surfaces.
