Born in 1970, in Mainz, Germany, Angela Glajcar now lives and works in Germany. She studied sculpture at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Nuremberg from 1991 to 1998. Glajcar has exhibited extensively and been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships. In 1998, Glajcar received the Studio Award of the Kunststiftung Erich Hauser to draft paper collages for the steel sculpture Akrobat. In 1999, she was the recipient of the Asterstein scholarship, awarded by the government of Rhineland-Palatinate. At this point, Glajcar experiments with hanging paper works for the first time. In 2004, Glajcar received the Vordemberge-Gildewart-Award for which she produced Contrarius, a black and white site-specific installation at the Museum Wiesbaden. Shortly thereafter, Glajcar created the first Terforation in 2005. Today, the artist continues to push the capabilities of paper and also works with plastics and glass fabric. Her work is in several collections.
