KATJA LOHER SWITZERLAND, b. 1979
Katja Loher was born in 1979 in Zurich, Switzerland and now lives and works in New York City. Drawing on inspiration from the natural world, Loher's work focuses on the inextricable relationship between humans and nature. Her multimedia installations feature everything from natural materials like twigs and branches, to video and hand blown glass. Her work is steeped in both technology and collaboration - teams of dancers, choreographers, and craftspeople all work with Loher to realize each piece. Loher has received numerous awards and distinguished artist residencies and has been commissioned and exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group shows.
