Christine Camenisch / Johannes Vetsch

*2010


Water sloshes on top of the grass growing on the riverbank. The light of the black and white projection, shimmering silver and cool, transforms the day into a night with a full moon. The embankment becomes a horizontal body; the grass becomes an animal’s long, waving fur. Sweeping noises with stoic regularity suggest further pictorial levels. A metallic screech in the distance reinforces the feeling of a disrupted, derailed idyll. Disturbance is in the air.

With just a single subject, the exhibition space is extensively explored. The structure created by the repetitive, uniform image—a collage of homologous elements—is devoid of hierarchy and order; its potential: to transform the existing architecture into a new place and, in conjunction with the soundtrack, to dissolve individual images and their representational content.
