Supporting Artists since 1972


Maria Loboda

Hessische Kulturstiftung Residency
2010/11

Maria Loboda is an interdisciplinary artist who uses objects, illustration, installation and audio recordings to create a symbolic lexicon for today’s world in a natural and social context. Her works draw from the symbolic connotations of physical objects in relation to time and history, investigating the connection between material things in the spiritual realm, between rationality and mysticism.

Maria studied fine art at the Städelschule art academy in Frankfurt am Main and was a visiting artist and scholar of the New York University and Steinhardt School of Culture, 2007 - 2008. Her exhibitions include: The Model, Sligo, Ireland, 2019; Woman Observing the Alpha Persei Cluster, Galerie Thomas Schulte, Berlin, 2019; Sitting Here As Bored As A Leopard, CCA Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, 2019; I Am Radiant, I Am Radiant, I Am Radiant in My Defeat, Centre of Contemporary Art, Vilnus, 2017; Some Weep, Some Blow Flutes, The Power Plant, Toronto, 2016; The Plutonian House, Mendes Wood, 2015.

Hessische Kulturstiftung, Germany
Acme has managed a residency programme on behalf of Hessische Kulturstiftung since 1995, located on Lyal Road, Bow, E3. Residencies are awarded to artists for a period of 12 months, and the size of the accommodation enables the artist to bring their family or dependents for the length of residency. Based in a residential area populated by many artists, the house is well situated for access to other arts spaces and central London. Residencies are open to all artists from Germany. Applications and selection are dealt with directly by Hessische Kulturstiftung.
