this work replicates the role of the artist - in this enormous circular sculpture, a large motorised steel blade slowly cuts a course through 25 tons of red wax, endlessly dissecting and re-shaping it into new forms.
"Ranner’s impenetrable interior models radiate an oppressive aura of alienation and isolation, which she heightens by erecting them as free-standing constructions. Consequently, visitors can only view the interiors from the outside – as if they were looking at paintings. The spaces are reminiscent of sets where a scene has just been played out, or is about to begin. This makes for a theatrical feel. But because the interiors are completely devoid of distinguishing personal features, they are also utterly anonymous – much as most hotel rooms are. Through her installations, Ranner exposes a typically modern void: the loneliness resulting from detachment."
