Angelika Loderers sculptures might be classified as media-reflective art: the characteristics of the materials she uses and the manufacturing processes are fundamental parameters informing the design process.
Her sculptures bear witness to the interplay between snapshot and durability and the ambivalence of value, perishability, and meaning. They call conceptions of value in question by enhancing simple and commonplace forms with precious materials, is concerned with the basic themes of sculpture: stability and fragility, durability and ephemerality are the cornerstones of their aesthetic practice.
Her creative approach is characterized by the improvisational and experimental uses she makes of her materials: unconventional combinations yield appealing objects that sometimes suggest a sort of performative sculpture.
Some of those pictorial objects, results of recent exmperiments with fungal mycelia, became content of her first artist´s book.
She has filled found acrylic glass boxes with wood seeded with fungus into which she then placed photographs, parts of her research collection on sculpture, volume, negative, positive space. Over the following weeks, she documented how the spores developed into fine webs, while the photographs were gradually damaged by moisture and fungal growth.
