New York-based Swiss artist Katja Loher creates video works that eloquently articulate the importance of the individual in contributing to the success of the whole. Specifically, Loher examines the vital role of bees in perpetuating global survival through her works Why Did the Bees Leave?, addressing the concern over colony collapse both literally and as a metaphor for the human condition. Loher takes a non-traditional approach to presenting her videos, projecting them through glass or liquid or onto large balloons, resulting in sculptural works that the artist refers to as Bubbles, Miniverses, and Videoplanets. Each piece is an intricately orchestrated and carefully manipulated performance, giving the visitor a bird’s-eye-view into a microcosm critical to the perpetuation of human existence.
