Philip Loersch is a German multidisciplinary artist. His main interests may be antiquarian bookshops and unamusing bureaucratic letters, and the main subject of his work is knowledge. Generally Philip Loersch resembles a quasi-archaeological museum, the exhibits of which are ancient findings that have preserved texts, news and illustrations from various eras, which he displays to the audience in his sculptural compositions and drawings.
“It was an i!n!t!e!n!s!e time, the recent time. The world has become a little more quiet and I found s l o w n e s s that had become rare. It remains exciting what is happening in the art world. I sincerely hope that collectors and viewers will remain aware of the value of art, perhaps especially in this time of being at home. Art is a dream, is life, is promising. The moment you take off the stuffy and stinky mask after visiting the supermarket – you can have the same feeling while looking at a great drawing. Take a breath and feel life. If you can't understand, you should go and see a good exhibition – and stand in front of an original. And the nice thing is that you can experience this feeling over and over again. I want to offer something. My drawings should be an invitation to look and marvel, to give thoughts and to steer into new directions. We are all saturated with problems of the last months. But at least we are saturated.”
