Sculpture Drei kleine Kuppeln by Christiane Löhr

The sculptor Christiane Löhr (* 1965) surprises us with a peculiar courage to go small. Instead of grand gestures and expansive installations, her meticulously constructed, miniature sculptures, made from wild, dried grasses, burrs or seeds, sometimes measure only a few centimetres. Consistently, the artist relies on renewable materials, which she sifts, harvests and orders before she begins the work process through reflecting on statics, colour and form. The results are fragile, almost translucent constructs, but also compact shapes that, through the intricate precision of their many elements, put on display the smallest geometrical orders nature has to offer. On that basis Löhr has developed a highly independent position in international contemporary art.

With Christiane Löhr a sculptural position, that is as consistent as it is extreme, is presented for the first time in Berlin. Harald Szeemann had already shown her work at the 49. Venice Biennale 2001. After exhibitions in Japan, the USA, Italy, Switzerland and numerous institutions in Germany, the Italian Arte Povera specialist, Germano Celant (1940–2020) dedicated one of his last texts to her at an exhibition in Milan in 2020. Christiane Löhr lives and works in Prato / Florence and in Cologne.
