Ulrike Mohr’s artistic approach utilizes material transformation processes that are influenced not only by complex research and entrusted knowledge, but also by chance occurrences. Over the past years, the burning of char has become a central modus operandi in her work. Mohr’s large “spatial drawings” are characterized by an attention to detail and surface: Subtle textures of everyday objects are as important to her as the attempt to uncover relationships between aesthetics and science – present and past.
