Works by multidisciplinary artist Veronika Geiger — photographs, video, and sculpture installations — investigate the concepts of gravity and time, with a predilection for themes such as the sky and the action of flying. Dream Collection presents a box containing a selection of anonymous found photographs of aeroplanes in flight. To this the artist appends a selection of verbs that these images evoke — “fold, prepare, look, recall, lift, launch, leap, go, propel, soar, hover, fly” —, presented here in the same container, together with the photos. Underlining the artist’s physical intervention and the contemplative character of her approach to the images, the careful ordering of the texts contrasts with the less regular arrangement of the photos. The inclusion of a pair of white gloves in the installation incites visitors to associate the verbs with the photographs: thus, Dream Collection, with poetry and subtlety, addresses the question of the interpretation of the image.
