Paperworks and Objects - May 14 until June 11, 2011
We are proud to present our second exhibition with works of Christiane Löhr focused on her works on paper.
She is deviding the space of mostly smallformat papers, with pencil, oil pastell or ink. Especially for this show she installed a large scale intervention in the exhibition space. A column that is aproxymately meters high, made from horse hair connecting the galleries ceiling and floor.
I feel a proximity to minimalism. I have the sense that my work process itself is strict. Each work has its own logic and follows a vision of clear gesture and form emerging from within myself... With drawings there is always an attempt to get a grip on the space of the page with just a few lines. (Christiane Löhr 2009)
