​Trees arranged in mili­tary forma­tion, a binary code of napkin rings, or bouquets of talking flowers: the sculp­tures and instal­la­tions by Maria Loboda are myste­rious and full of secrets.


Her encoded messages reveal them­selves only at second glance. The artist trans­fers long-forgotten knowl­edge into the imme­diate present with her ready-made objects and instal­la­tions in space. Like an archae­ol­o­gist, she digs through cultural history to find it, studying archaic impres­sions and supposed truths about the order of the world. Loboda will be devel­oping new works for the SCHIRN and presenting them in the freely acces­sible Rotunda. In her artistic approach she will pursue the antag­o­nism between form and content: the artist under­lines the poetic effect of her sculp­tures and spatial instal­la­tions with sober aesthetics and an economy of means. Maria Loboda lives and works in Berlin. Between 2003 and 2008 she studied under Mark Leckey at the Städelschule in Frank­furt/Main and has already been repre­sented in group and solo exhi­bi­tions world­wide, including at the Kunsthalle Basel, the IAC – Institut
d’art contem­po­rain in Villeur­banne, The Power Plant in Toronto, the Kunstvereins of Braun­schweig and Biele­feld, and at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. In addi­tion to this, Loboda also took part in docu­menta 13.
