Katja Loher: Beeplanet — A featured exhibi-
tion for the 2015 PULSE Art + Technology Festival, Beeplanet focuses on the work of the Swiss-born artist Katja Loher, a leader among the next generation of video artists. Loher’s work takes video out of conventional modern contexts and into wall-mounted video portals and hand-blown glass bubbles. By peering into these orbs, viewers enter a parallel universe of performances by costumed dancers, entirely scripted, choreographed, and filmed by Loher. Environmental themes play a large role in the artist’s recent works, touching on endangered species, bee colony collapse, and speculation on whether humans can fulfill the essential roles that these creatures play.
