About and CV

Unconventional choices of material, powerful colour combinations, simple and legible communicating visual concepts distinguishes the set and costume design by Lotta Barlach.

Parallel with commissions for a wide range of productions, subordinated different contexts, Lotta Barlach is also a fine artist and a creator who commissions herself in different projects within art and applied arts.

Fascinated by the structures of urban living, she links together industrially made objects, traces from contemporary urban daily life, weaving a picture of its meanings.

In her photobased work in progress she uses the camera to dig in contemporary environments. By using simple and direct methods, she catches the moment in which the traces of the past and the present meet.

As a contribution to the slow fashion movement, Lotta Barlach created the label Lotta. The main garment of the label is a pen skirt with high waist, visible zippers and interchangeable pockets. More info about the label: www.lotta.one
