Book Description Sophie Ristelhuebers (geb. 1949 in Paris) großformatige Fotografien und Installationen zeigen Landschaften in Fragmenten: Zerstört, zerrissen, vernarbt. Diese Spuren von Geschichte, Konflikten und Kriegen, die die Künstlerin lakonisch »Details dieser Welt« nennt, wirken wie Narben auf einem Körper, die kaum verheilen: Und auch diese hat sie fotografiert, Menschen mit Narben auf der Haut, die kaum so schmerzen können wie jene auf der Seele. Seit 1982 war Ristelhueber in den Krisengebieten dieser Welt unterwegs, etwa in Beirut, Kuwait, Bosnien und dem Irak. Es geht ihr nicht um die geopolitische Bedeutung eines spezifischen Krieges, sondern um die Vielschichtigkeit eines »Terrains des Realen« und um die kollektiven Emotionen, die damit einhergehen. Solche Kriegslandschaften sind für sie Teil eines unaufhörlichen historischen Kreislaufs von Zerstörung und Aufbau. Geschichtspessimismus? But that's what it is! (Text engl.) 19,5 x 25,5 cm, 448 S., zahlreiche farb. und s/w-Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 653772

Book Description London: Thames & Hudson Ltd, 2009. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Wie neu. 448 Seiten, mit 560 Abbildungen. Hardcoverband mit illustriertem Schutzumschlag in neuwertigem Zustand. - In Sophie Ristelhueber's large-scale artworks and installations, the photographed landscape appears in fragments: damaged, rent, pockmarked. These traces of history and conflict, which the artist calls details of the world, are like scars on a body, and they convey a similar tale of wounds scarcely healed. Ristelhueber has photographed these metaphorical landscapes in war-torn places like Beirut, Kuwait, Bosnia and Iraq since 1982, recording the violence inflicted on the surface of the earth by the machinery of war. Rather than focusing on the geopolitical meaning of a particular conflict, Ristelhueber is engaged with the ambiguities of what she calls the terrain of the real and of collective emotions. In her magisterial triptych Iraq, rows of burnt, decapitated palm trees stand in a blasted-out landscape; they are like, the artist says, the remains of a defeated army. Although the image clearly resonates with the current war in Iraq and ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, Ristelhuebers approach implies that the current situation is part of an unceasing historical cycle of destruction and construction. In her photographs, the surface of the land becomes a kind of palimpsest on which the disfiguring marks of decades of conflict continue to be recorded.
