Pascale Wiedemann is one of the most innovative Swiss artists to gain prominence in the last decade. This book documents the two-part project that served as her reemergence onto the international art scene together with Daniel Mettler, her artistic collaborator and husband, after the birth of their first child: “morbus infinitus” and “subkutan.” Both a retrospective and a reckoning of their artistic position, morbus infinitus & subkutan also includes the pair’s latest work, which employs enigmatic photographs of a Swiss hospital as social biotope.
With essays by distinguished scholars that examine the couple’s work from both an art historical and literary perspective, this volume contains the first English discussion of Wiedemann and Mettler’s fascinating oeuvre. morbus infinitus & subkutantake its rightful place among books capturing the most cutting-edge and exciting photography and istallation art being produced today.
