Born in Milan, 1974. Lives and works in Milan.

A letter suspended in a glass sheet conveys the eternal movement of love in spite of the outward fixedness of a text. As Panta rei, Heraclitus’ “everything flows”, means the relentless movement expressed through the fixity of a phrase, so Kronenberg looks into the flowing of thought in the seeming imperturbability of a handwritten text, suspended between reality and imagination.
