The Space Between Memory and Expectation

a new Project and Monograph by


monograph published by Kehrer Verlag, with essays by Makeda Best, Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography at the Harvard Art Museums, and Courtney J Martin, director of the Yale Center for British Art

About the Project:

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”.
