RONIT BARANGA

Ronit Baranga was born in Israel where she currently lives and works.

The "Grave Watchers' Childhood" is a series of beast-like infant sculptures by the Israeli artist Ronit Baranga. She uses the traditional media clay to create lifelike images of human toddlers that embody a cute yet threatening aspect. She tried to imagine the process of how tomb guardians from the Tang Dynasty became what they currently are: stiff figures, deterrent with a fearful role. She sculpted them in their early childhood, as babies. A time where innocence, sweetness and playfulness were still possible. This process raises several questions: is their role as adults an unavoidable faith or an outcome of the reality in which they grew up in? Is their role a threat? A necessity? Or maybe a wishful heart desire? In the "Grave Watchers Childhood" series of works there is a threatening and intimidating aspect together with sweetness and vulnerability.
