Felicitas Rohden (°1984) is a visual artist living and working in Düsseldorf and Brussels.
Her installation based work addresses the shift between image-planes and space and aims to turn mathematical space concepts into pictorial images. Scientific theories and close collaborations with scientists form the starting point of her artistic interests.
Book objects, sculptures and series of prints depict a visual language which unfolds, deconstructs or alienates diagrams and formulas such as e.g. the topological theories of Henri Poincaré. Where abstract ideas and material qualities meet, is where Rohden creates sculptural allusions which exemplify the limits of pure logical understanding.
Rohden achieved her Masters in Fine Art in 2009 at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and has since been exhibiting internationally. She received a studio grant from „Kunstverein für die Rheinlände und Westfalen“ between 2011-2013 and participated in residency programs such as „FAAP-Residência Artistica“ in São Paulo, and „Kuntstiftung NRW-Atelier Galata“ in Istanbul. Currently she is an artist in residence at MASS MoCA Museum, Massachusetts, USA.
Between 2009 and 2014 she has curated several exhibitions for project spaces and museums in Düsseldorf, such as „Avante Brasil“ for KIT-Kunst im Tunnel. In 2015 she co-founded INKTprojects, an Antwerp based platform dedicated to international projects which question reproduction and interpretation based on the graphical medium. Felicitas Rohden is also a lecturer at the Fine Art department at St Lucas School of Arts in Antwerp, Belgium.
