In October, the second duo of artists is working in Krzyżowa as part of the project “Sztuka. Land. Art. ", the aim of which is to create a form of artistic expression that combines the values of nature with the social aspect. The joint work is created by Leonie Löhr from Germany and Dawid Okoński from Poland. Soon we will provide information about the vernissage, during which you will be able to see the effect of their work, while we present the profiles of the artists.
Leonie Löhr born 1989 in Lindau, Germany, is a sculptor and designer. She specializes in designing wooden furniture, but is also interested in sustainable construction, using natural materials such as wood or clay, and the project of the artistic residence in Krzyżowa allows her to deepen these interests. When painting with tempera, her gaze is determined by color sensations and tactile perception. Sensitive life plans in the context of climate change and body perceptions in the action space “nature” are the interfaces of her artistic work. Leonie lives and works in Leipzig.
