The event will start on Thursday, September 10, 2020, at 6 pm at for​you​and​your​cus​tom​ers at the Uster site. Curator Guido Baumgartner will give an introduction to the works. 

Maya Lalive’s work developed from a meditative view of soul landscapes in painting to large-format interventions with photographic objects in outdoor or indoor spaces. Her monumental installation “Der Riss / La fessura” at the Albigna dam in Bergell, 2016, triggered an international response. This temporary work was captured in the film “Nah am Riss” in an artistic-documentary view that understands the crack as a primal force of nature on various levels. In several photo series Maya Lalive lets the viewer participate in her extraordinary perspective of high alpine climbing: Under the title “Unknown Landscapes” she shows rock surfaces and lichens as fascinating micro-landscapes between nature and abstraction. At the same time, her pictures, as documents of the times, refer to the sensitive balance and constant change in nature. (Text: Judith Annaheim)
