b. 1979 Zurich, Switzerland, lives and works in New York City, NY

Katja Loher is a leader among the next generation of video artists. Her work takes the video out of the conventional modern contexts and exists with the wall-mounted hand-blown glass bubbles. By peering into these glass orbs, the viewer enters a Parallel Universe entirely scripted, choreographed and filmed by Loher. Loher's work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including: Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa, USA; FMC to Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, São Paulo, Brazil; MAXXI Museum, Rome, Italy; United Nations Pavilion, Shanghai Expo, China; SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama, Japan and Art Digital Moscow, Russia. Her work is featured in many private and public collections, among them: 21C Museum, Kentucky, USA; Collection Credit Suisse, Switzerland; The Arts Collection, Japan; Horsecross Collection, UK and Figge Art Museum, Iowa, USA.
