MONUMENTAL SCRATCH (2014)

I grew up in Switzerland in the country side on the edge of a forest. Working outside and moving around in difficult terrain are in both my body and my brain. Currently I live in Bern.

I used a copperplate and made an imprint from details of 9 public monuments in Paris in 2014. It’s maybe one of the most harmless things you can do to a building, but it felt powerful like the building was falling.
