MARIA LOBODA. Idyl in an Electronics Factory

NOVEMBER 16, 2018 – FEBRUARY 3, 2019

Maria Loboda’s sculptures and installations are mysterious and full of secrets; their encoded messages reveal themselves only at second glance. The artist uses her three-dimensional works to transfer past knowledge into the here and now. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt is presenting the exhibition "Maria Loboda. Idyl In An Electronics Factory" including three works by Maria Loboda which she has developed specially for the freely accessible Rotunda. Taken together they tell a story that refers to the pioneering American landscape architect James C. Rose (1913–1991).

THE ARTIST MARIA LOBODA PRESENTS A MYSTERIOUS SCULPTURE GARDEN IN THE ROTUNDA OF THE SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT

With the exhibition title "Idyl In An Electronics Factory," Loboda makes direct reference to a review with the same title published in 1963 in the American design magazine Interiors. It addresses the interior courtyard of a company for electronic components in Livingstone, New Jersey, designed by James C. Rose. He saw the movement and transformation of the landscape as essential features of landscape architecture. Rose included the relationships between all of the materials that occur in landscape architecture—such as, for example, the constantly changing plants as well as the static sculptures, but also the people who linger in and move through the designed landscape.
