Both a sculptor and a photographer, German-born Vera R hm is best known for her unorthodox approach to visual art. Using a repertoire of only elementary geometrical shapes, R hm’s incisions, mutilations, and cross-sections of various materials evoke the very real challenges of restoration and reconstruction.
Vera R hm is the first comprehensive collection of this contemporary artist’s work to be presented to an English-speaking public. It explores the changing shape of R hm’s art in such installations as Integrations and Shadow Objects, as her photographs of the Jaipur Observatory, and works such as the cube series bearing the inscription “Night is the Earth’s Shadow,” which form part of a significant corpus of work connected with language. Accompanied by essays from renowned poet and critic Eugen Gomringer and the art historian Stephen Bann, Vera R hm is lavishly illustrated with images from her exhibitions.
