«Manche Architekturen sollen repräsentieren, sollen sich und eine bestimmte Ambition ihrer Umwelt zur Schau stellen.»
«Some architecture is designed to be representative; it should flaunt itself and demonstrate a particular ambition in relation to its surroundings.»
Bianca Pedrina’s photography collection started some time ago and shows her engagig with her built environment and urbanity in different locations. She only rarely turns her attention to prestigious buildings. And if she does, then mostly to their details. With her photographies she tells no stories, nor does she glorifies or criticise. Instead she draws our gaze to what lies at the periphery, almost hidden and yet visible to the person through the present with gaze attuned.
The publication was published on occasion of Bianca Pedrina’s exhibition at Kunsthaus Baselland and is accompanied by the texts Architecture–Gaze–Body by Salome Bessenich, Attending to Details by Ines Goldbach.
