Opening hours

In her sculptural work, Vera Kox explores the interconnection between the environment, human, and non-human life forms. She examines the multifaceted properties of various materials and often combines handcrafted ceramic elements with industrially produced semi-finished products, which in her installations merge into merge into a cohesive whole as fossilised hybrids of our modern civilisation.

During her research expeditions to climatically extreme natural regions and international residencies, Kox gathers impressions and imprints, which she processes into a new multimedia body of work. In Sentient Soil, her first institutional solo exhibition in Luxembourg, Vera Kox presents a selection of older works as well as a series of work specially produced for her exhibition at Konschthal Esch, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in unusual environments.
