Dear Jungfrau

 

How to map an ever changing landscape? This work is a reaction* of the book and wallpaper ‘Colour Based on Nature’ by Dutch bookmaker Irma Boom and that I took as a guide to visit one of the pages of the book; a┬ástriped colour landscape based on a photograph of the Swiss Jungfrau-Aletsch area. The woven book resonates the formation of the Jura mountain area, that was once the bottom of the sea and raised upwards because of tectonic forces shaping the Alps.

*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;┬áthe book and wallpaper ‘Colour Based on Nature’ by Dutch bookmaker Irma Boom.
