Struggling for Centimeters:
A Conversation with Christiane Löhr

by Paula Llull


The organic element in Christiane Löhr’s sculptures first captures the viewer’s attention. All of her constructions are made of seeds, stalks, and horse and dog hair, stuck to each other or directly nailed to the wall or support pedestal. Photographs can barely convey the minuteness and fragility of her sculptures. But when visitors have the opportunity to walk around Löhr’s shows, where the location of every single piece is calculated to the millimeter, architecture suddenly comes center-stage, radically altering perceptions of these delicate objects and their surroundings.
