Beate Terfloth was born in Hong Kong and spent part of her childhood in various parts of Asia and in Angola. She completed her studies in Berlin and Munich and then lived in Rome and Pakistan, where she taught at the National College of Arts in Lahore.



In 1999 she returned to Berlin. Terfloth has received numerous prestigious awards, including the German Artists' Association Prize, the ars viva art prize and the Charlottenburg art prize. Since 2009 she has been a professor of drawing and graphics at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg.


A central aspect of her artistic practice is creating new spaces through drawings. Terfloth always strives for the fragile balance of a conversation, whereby her spatial interventions are in dialogue with the existing space. In her work she enables a parallel level that creates a new perception of space and its ambiguity.


For her project in the royal bakery, Beate Terfloth will deal with the mobile matter of the dough both sculpturally and graphically. The dough is coherent and takes on a momentary shape and weight, but at the same time is shapeless. This reminds the artist of the depiction of female bodies in Rubens' works.
