Angelika Loderer was born in 1984 in Feldbach, Austria, and lives and works in Wien. She studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna from 2006 to 2011 and attended the Wimbledon College of Art in London in 2009. Growing up in close proximity to her family’s foundry, where she continues to work to this day, Loderer was able to experience both the idiosyncrasies of physical matter and the potential of negative and positive form at close quarters. The artist is able to address materiality, balance and gesture in a natural, unforced and playful manner, while testing the limits of sculptural form. As she strings viewers along with her mesmerizing structural experiments, she prompts a consideration of not only the absence and presence of space and the stability and transience of objects, but also of living processes, disintegration, and the fluxes that occur in between.
