England is regarded as the cradle of Pop Art and spawned numerous unusual positions on the phenomenon of the then revolutionary, new art movement.

Ulrike Mohr

In her installations and cartographic works, Ulrike Mohr investigates definitions and arrangements. She often reveals standardisations that we take for granted, and adapts or infiltrates them. Her matter-of-fact approach does not aim to bring any system to collapse; instead she cleverly undermines a system and re-imagines it.
This process can refer to agreements within social groups or to natural laws. A stream is a stream even if two trees meet above it. This quotation, which is not dissimilar to a Japanese haiku, was taken from a definition of rivers and streams from the German armed forces and then changed. It is symptomatic of the work of Ulrike Mohr that here, as elsewhere, trees, waters, standardisations and hierarchical structures reside in her works.
