Kerstin Ergenzinger studied Fine Arts with a focus on sculpture and drawing at Berlin University of the Arts and Chelsea College of Arts, London and subsequently undertook postgraduate studies in Media Art at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. Within her experimental practice Ergenzinger creates metaphorical places: experiential spaces, perceptual machines with sculptural qualities, and notational and semiotic systems. Her works explore the sensory and conceptual relationships between the individual and its physical surroundings. Focusing on technologies and strategies applied in spatial navigation and the production of knowledge, Ergenzinger explores the limits of human perception and our capacity to comprehend and interpret our surroundings at a conscious level. Her works have been shown internationally in both group and solo exhibitions at diverse institutions.
Kerstin Ergenzinger is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including the North Rhine-Westphalia Scholarship for Young Artists (Media Art) and a work stipend granted by the Arts Fund Foundation.
