Christiane Löhr (1965, Wiesbaden, Germany) works and lives between Köln and Prato.

Nature is the central motif of Christiane Löhr's work. For her works - sculptures and installations- the artist employs elements belonging to the natural world, such as seeds of diverse vegetable species, stalks, stems, inflorescences of small plants, at times even horsehair. Through these simple materials, picked by the artist on an urban roadside or during a walk in the country, Löhr observes the perfection of the geometrical shapes, their inner structures, as well as their compositional potential, by dividing, sorting and drying them. The artist proceeds by means of aggregation, construction, sometimes only by juxtaposition, or by interweaving. She was known to an international audience for her participation in 2001 at the 49th Edition of the Venice Biennale curated by Harald Szeemann, she has shown in several solo and group exhibitions in international museums and galleries, including "Objekte und Zeichnungen" at the Kunstverein Heidelberg (2005), "Wie die Dinge den Raum berühren" at the Kunstmuseum in Bonn (2003) and "Il racconto del filo" at the Museo di Arte Contemporanea in Rovereto, Italy (2003).
