2016 Over The Alps

 

The collage series re-examine the various relationships to the romantic idea of landscape memory and the symbol of lifestyle. Employing clippings from the SWISS magazine, I created and small format collages on ink paper. The collages are inspired from the books of Lucius Burckhardt and the especially the book Why is Landscape Beautiful?. He was the founder of strollology or promenadology, based on methods in cultural studies as well as experimental practices like taking reflective walks and aesthetically interventions. To change the perspective from walking – flying, earth – sky, below – above, we meet the beautiful opposition. I am focusing on concept of overlaying ink drawings and cuttings, without any human traces, the variety of photographic color and the drawing.
