A Meticulously Constructed Cosmos of Vegetative Architectures
Christiane Löhr creates a unique cosmos of sculptures and installations with materials from nature. Employing airborne seeds, plant stems, burrs, tree blossoms, horse and dog hair for her organic-abstract repertoire of forms, she transforms these ephemeral materials with an element of surprise into precisely constructed sculptures that are both delicate and expansive.
In keeping with the comprehensive retrospective, this catalogue is comprised as an anthology: In addition to new texts by Julia Wallner, Jutta Mattern, Astrid von Asten, and Tiziano Scarpa, it brings together insightful essays on the artist’s work from the past decades. The texts are complemented by installation shots of Löhr’s intricate sculptures that create permeable spaces in the light-flooded building of the arp museum Bahnhof Rolandseck designed by Richard Meier.

CHRISTIANE LÖHR (*1965, Wiesbaden), who works in Cologne and in Prato, in Tuscany, is one of the most significant voices in the current discourse on contemporary approaches to sculpture. Her works were part of the 49th Venice Biennale, curated by Harald Szeemann, and have been shown in solo exhibitions at the Panza Collection in Varese, Kunsthaus Baselland, Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden in Wuppertal, and Haus am Waldsee in Berlin.
