Photographer and video artist Nina Rike Springer molds and shapes the human form to produce evocative geometric expressions. Set against a deep, navy background, three figures void of gender identifications take possession of particular shapes, holding these ambiguous objects in their hands to take on different emotions. In the foreground, a yellow-capped individual curves his body in a protective pose around a circle. To his right, a pink-capped person grasps a sharp multi-angular form. His pointed elbow merges into the shape itself to become a fixed prong, while to his left, a figure lightly holds above his orange-covered head, a tilted pink bar with multi-leveled drips. His body assumes the movement of the shape and develops a sense of heaviness that contrasts greatly with the vigor of the pink-headed figure’s elbow. ohne-titel – epiphany (2012) is reminiscent of 1920s Constructivism, but the Vienna-based artist creates enticing nuances with her bright-colored figures that use extreme tonal contrasts and corporeal contours in order to animate abstractions.
