Publication Ruth Maria Obrist: the poetry of logic
Kerber, 2022
Texts: Feli Schindler, Claudia Spinelli, Judith Annaheim

There is a trace of timeless arithmetic validity in the work of Ruth Maria Obrist. Her objects and installations explore themes such as mathemat-ics – 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.
