The silent and continuous erosion trickling from the top of mountains, via glaciers, tropical forests, sand dunes, icefields of Patagonia, European glaciers into the ocean and the urban waterways of New York’s harbor. Tracing an unbroken line, the eye is guided from one sweeping landscape to the next without doubting their separateness in location and origin, showing the interconnectedness of distant environments, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live”. Renate Aller

In April 2020, when New York was in lockdown and the epicentre of the pandemic, Renate Aller created the project side walk. She hosted friends and neighbors on her sidewalk or visited them in their street, her camera in self timer mode, recording these masked encounters at a safe 6 feet distance. With voices muted by masks we learn to communicate with our eyes and body language, finding our bearings in a new emotional landscape. These sidewalk visits created a deep sense of community where community had been forced apart.

Born in Germany, Renate Aller lives and works in New York. “The Space Between Memory and Expectation” and “side walk 6′ apart in NYC” are her most recent books, both published by Kehrer Verlag, Germany. “Mountain Interval” and the artist’s previous projects “Ocean and Desert”, “dicotyledon” (published by Radius Books of Santa Fe) and the long term project “Oceanscapes – One View – Ten Years” (co published by Kehrer Verlag and Radius Books) support the artist’s investigation into the relationship between Romanticism, memory and landscape – in the context of our current socio-political awareness.
