Ronit Baranga (born 1973, Israel) lives and works in Israel. Using both sculpture and installation, Baranga creates figurative art on the border between living and still life, dealing with emotional states and relationships. Her practice combines hyperrealism with myths and fantasies, taking ordinary objects from our daily life, and adding fragments of the human body to them. The result is a playful, unpredictable and surreal mix of assembled elements that embody the complexity of different contemporary topics such as identity, control, consumption, in a forced, disturbing yet attractive way.
Her work has been shown in various museums and galleries around the world in solo exhibitions including: Størpunkt Gallery, Munich (2021); Beinart Gallery, Melbourne (2020); Booth Gallery, NYC (2018); The Red House, Tel-Aviv (2017); Raanana Municipal Gallery, Raanana (2017); and in many other group exhibitions: KIRK Gallery, Denmark (2021); Modern Eden Gallery, San Francisco (2020); Eretz Israel Museum, Tel-Aviv (2020); Abdül Mecid Efendi Museum, Istanbul (2019); Haifa Museum of Art, Haifa (2019); Akron Museum of Art, Akron, Ohio (2018); Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan (2016), and in the Banksy’s group exhibition “Dismaland” in Weston-super-Mare, UK (2015).
Baranga’ work is part of many museum and private collections, such as the The National Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana, the Great China Museum, Jingdezhen, the Yingge Ceramics Museum, Yingge, Taiwan, the Ömer Koç Collection, Istanbul, and the Hieronymus Collection, Richard and Alita Rogers Family Foundation, USA.
Baranga holds a B.A. in Psychology and Literature from Haifa University; she studied Art History in Tel-Aviv University, and Fine Arts in Beit Berl College (‘HaMidrasha’), Israel.
