Portrait of a Landscape

7 July–16 September 2018

Exhibition Overview


Pierre-Philippe Hofmann is a visual artist from Brussels with Swiss roots. He has crossed Switzerland along ten axes – from the outermost borders to the geographical centre: Älggi Alp in the canton Obwalden. Along the way, he regularly took many great pictures in the form of video stills, thus capturing Switzerland's altitude differences, climate zones and landscape forms. Under the title 'Portrait of a Landscape', this collection of images will run on dozens of screens in the form of a large video installation, enabling Switzerland, as a space, to be perceived by the visitor in an unfamiliar way.
