Artistic research to the nature, landscape and culture of the Swiss Jungfrau-Aletsch glacier.
In the context of the exhibition ’10 Years Thomas Eyck’ curator Jules van den Langenberg invited me to react on one of the works in the t.e collection; the book and wallpaper ‘Colour Based on Nature’ by Dutch bookmaker Irma Boom.
This book I took as a guide and visited on one of the pages of the book; a striped colour landscape based on a photograph of the Swiss Jungfrau-Aletsch area.
How to map an ever changing landscape? It inspired me to explore the area first as tourist and later as artist-in-residence at the High Altitude Research Station Jungfraujoch. I worked on location to research the perspectives from which humans observe nature. I observed tourists and scientists, who relate to the landscape in a range of different ways.
Based on my findings I created a multimedia collections of work; a jacquard woven book, textile on the meter, 2 movies, and a soundpiece.
