About the exhibition:
Photography is a way of noticing our surroundings. Regula Rüegg is especially interested in the unspectacular events and small shifts in everyday life, the often overlooked background of the grander things. By taking photos, but also by writing, she celebrates the uniqueness of those subtle and only seemingly unpresuming themes. During the pandemic, being tied to the apartment, her attention was drawn ever more to the beauty of inconspicuous objects like a radiator or wilting flowers.This exhibition features Regula Rüegg photographs from the past 20 years.
About the artist:
