KATJA LOHER: What is the Color of Scent?


C24 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist Katja Loher marking her third solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be on view September 6 - October 27, 2018 with an opening reception on Thursday September 6 from 6 – 8 pm.

What is the Color of Scent? transforms the gallery space into an ethereal world in which the viewer journeys through an enchanted universe altered by vision, sound, and scent. Katja Loher embeds her colorful videos in hand-blown glass sculptures, nests and tables. Creating Videoplanets, Videoportals and Miniverses the artist deconstructs the traditional rectangular format of video. Combining nature and technology in a collaborative process, her creations urge the viewer to consider the complex relationship between humans and nature.

In Loher’s videos, choreographed movement of magical beings create hypnotic mind and eye-bending mandalas that explore the elements: Air, Water, Fire, Earth, and Love. The viewer discovers dancers in fantastic costumes that reveal the secret lives of flora and fauna. The creatures of her videos act in harmony to evoke awareness of nature’s beauty and fragility. Unique scent combinations accompany each element, engendering subtle yet powerful scentscape that compliment Loher’s fully immersive, sensorial experience.

The exhibition will be on view September 6 - October 27, 2018 with an opening reception on Thursday September 6 from 6 – 8 pm.
