Anneliese Vobis - Symbiosis
May 18 - June 26, 2015
Metro Gallery in City Hall hosts installation artist Anneliese Vobis. Symbiosis explores the interrelation of organisms in the ecosystem and natural environment using mixed media materials that include plastic, felt, fabric and recycled paper. This installation uses artificial materials to construct natural shapes that resist an environment of artificiality while exploring the deep and mysterious nature of life.
“For my installations the interrelation of organism in ecosystems serves as a starting point for scientific related research and experimentation. The experiments mimic destructive impacts like ocean acidification, pollution, greenhouse effect; the resulting project confronts with the strange beauty of environmental degradation.” - Anneliese Vobis
