An amalgam of slick, kaleidoscopic video stills glide past like a projection of psychedelic microscope slides. A woman’s face smirks playfully from one image, her face peering out with its human features, while her body sports the yellow and black pattern of a bee. Visual artist, Katja Loher, creates video sculptures, which she calls “videobubbles” that play off themes of mysticism and natural beauty. At C24 Gallery in New York, the Swiss artist’ videos and installations are replete with immersive imagery and sound. Contained in tight, bright circular projections and glassy protrusions, Loher’s works are playful as they reverberate with a blissful back-noise. The exhibit VUELA VUELA, takes its name from a song sung by the Peruvian Ashanika healers; in its message, it speaks of a link between Earth and the universe.
The natural element of Loher’s otherworldly works’ are a constant theme in her quirky, transparent installations. Loher’s intrinsic connection with nature easily transcends her needs for technology. She shares with The Creators Project, “I try to free video from technology, because I see art as a language and technology is only something elementary. Beauty is omnipresent in my works, as the essence of life sustaining processes supporting our planet.”
