Christiane Löhr

Wiesbaden, Germany, 1965. Lives in Prato and Cologne

After studying history and archeology in the 1980s and ‘90s, Löhr went on to study art. In 1996 she left the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, where she studied alongside Jannis Kounellis. She now divides her time between Prato and her studio in Cologne, Germany. Ever since 2001, when she took part in the 49th Venice Biennale, the artist has been working on miniaturized, non-monumental sculptures, whose structure and “architecture” are based on the organic vegetal materials from which they are made. Her solo shows over the last three years have included exhibitions at the Kunsthaus Baselland (2016), the Vangi Sculpture Museum in Shizoka (2015), the Jason McCoy Gallery in New York (2015) and the Tucci Russo Studio per l’Arte Contemporanea in Torre Pellice (2014). In 2016 she was awarded the Pino Pascali prize, the XXV Premio Nazionale Arti Visive di Città di Gallarate, and the Arte: Sostantivo Femminile prize from the GNAM in Rome.
