"Botanics" is informed by the three dimensional order systems found in natural and bionic structures.
Independently exploring artificial -and the intersection with natural- frameworks, this will be the first exhibition of both Christina Paetsch and Nele Ströbel's work together in a spacial conversation. Both artists have been living and working in Berlin for over two decades. 

The exhibition's installation echoes the concept of a three dimensional chamber, a spacial conversation between photo works, terracotta sculptures, bricolage, and drawings. 
Nele Ströbel received her MA in Sculpture at the College of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria in 1984 and completed her Meisterjahr in 1985. She received the Karl Buchrucker Prize for Fine Arts in 2002 and her work can be found in several public and private collections, as well as receiving the 2016 First prize for sculpture in Treptower Park, Berlin for a public installation.
