This book is not yet published, but will be available from May 2024.

ISBN: 9783775756693 Category:


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.
