Ruth Maria Obrist
the poetry of logic
- Presents the most recent works by Ruth Maria Obrist from 2000 – 2021 as well as numerous projects that Obrist realised together with architects and in public spaces
There is a trace of timeless arithmetic validity in the work of Ruth Maria Obrist. Her objects and installations explore themes such as mathematics – chaos and order – space, void, proportion, and volume. Over the years, the ocean, too, caught between beauty, destruction and healing, has been a central theme.
Ruth Maria Obrist’s works are of a profound materiality. Using bitumen, white glue, mercuchrome, gold or rust, she creates sensory surfaces that – formally reduced to the essential – exude a poetic ease.
This book covers works from the years 2000 to 2021, including some of the numerous projects that Ruth Maria Obrist realised together with architects and in public spaces.
