Born in Marburg (Germany), 1979. Lives and works in Milan.

Anja Puntari responds ideally to Giovanni Kronenberg’s sculpture by placing it in direct relationship with a work created in 2007: three mug shots of dead people in search of identity that she took from the internet and transfigured to bring them to the verge of transparency. Whether they are mental or real landscapes, the subjects that she portrays appear to oscillate between the proximity of an intimate experience and the exoticism of a distant horizon.
