VERA KOX

‘Apparent across all elements of Kox’s practice is the presence of tensile stress; often emphasised through varying degrees of an object’s abnormality and as an inherent tenet of the material itself. By way of manipulation the different techniques and processes she employs in the making of her sculptures ensure that they assume a degree of patent and self-evident agency, whilst testing the limitations of what is considered visually acceptable. Simultaneously expanding upon the boundaries of our perceptions, as much as she does the material with which she works. In this way Kox plays a game of material hyperbole, assessing the nature of matter through the principles of liminality.’ (Dani Admiss)

Born in 1984 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, Vera Kox studied at Goldsmiths College, London and currently lives and works in Berlin and Luxemburg. In 2017 she will be participating in the exhibition ‘Flatland / abstractions narratives #2’, curated by Marianne Derrien and Sarah Ihler-Meyer which opens at MUDAM in Luxemburg on October 6th 2017.
The artist’s first solo exhibition at Galleri Opdahl will take place November 3rd, 2017.
