Artist Statement:


Working in several different media with a number of collaborators around the world, New York-based Swiss artist Katja Loher explores language and visual form together in an assemblage of technologies and dramatic sculptures. She creates a powerful visual platform that pulls viewers out of their current perspectives and reveals a broader view of existential questions and present concerns in the world.
Miniverse2 presents a bird’s-eye view of people in minimalist uniforms performing a structured choreography. The ball displays scenes in which workers become part of a synchronized movement as they perform tasks that must be done 24 hours a day to keep nature balanced and to allow humanity to survive on our planet in our current numbers. For example, one group of workers attends the work of bees to ensure that they pollinate the flowers.
