Batia Suter: Hexamiles (Mont-Voisin)

45,00

Hexamiles (Mont-Voisin) has been published on the occasion of Batia Suter’s exhibition at the Mauvoisin Dam in Switzerland (built 2,000 meters above sea level, it is the highest dam in Europe). For this artist book, Suter focused on her ever-expanding archive of scanned landscape images, which had already started to play an important role in Parallel Encyclopedia #2 (Roma 284, 2016). Many of those images depict wastelands, alternating between romantic and menacing views which simultaneously create sensations of majesty and disorientation. By layering them over each other, a variety of disparate geological and biological environments merge into composite landscapes we might only recognise from dreams and fairy tales. In the book’s sequence, a kind of adventurous journey takes shape, pitched between an odyssey, a safari and paradise. The book’s title is derived from the term Hexameter, a poetic form of writing used in Homer’s Odyssey. Mont-Voisin, which also serves as the title for the exhibition, is inspired by different spellings used by 18th and 19th century travellers to describe Mauvoisin.
