NOWs: Matthias Sohr – Public Science
Matthias Sohr: Public Science
With Public Science, Matthias Sohr gives an account of things we encounter in our cities on an everyday basis without us paying attention to them, and yet they are in constant dialogue with our bodies. His sculptures – whether incorporating armrests, bathroom structures or floor markings – endorse shapes and reliefs that are as much a part of art history as they are of the street, thus integrating our everyday life at the price of an almost unconscious assimilation. Matthias Sohr re-enacts these forms and materials in the exhibition space and re-sensitizes the viewer’s visual and visceral attention through his works.
Matthias Sohr was born in 1980 in Düsseldorf. He lives and works in Lausanne.
