Pascale Wiedemann is one of the most innovative Swiss artists to gain recent prominence. This book documents the two-part project that marked 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, the double volume Morbus Infinitus & Subkutan also includes the couple’s latest work, a commission for a large Swiss hospital employing enigmatic photographs of the hospital as social biotope.
With essays by distinguished scholars Kathleen Bühler and Beat Stutzer that examine the couple’s work from both an art historical and literary perspective, this volume contains the first English discussion of wiedemann/mettler’s fascinating oeuvre. Morbus Infinitus & Subkutan takes its rightful place among books capturing the most cutting-edge and exciting photography and installation art being produced today.
