Dr. Christiane S., 2015

Series Title: Puppenhaus
Number of artworks at AIPAD: 3
Edition: 2 + 1AP
Size: Various
Medium: Hand-made photo-collage (mixed media)
Year: 2015–2016

With this new series, Cornelia Hediger brings together meticulously constructed photographs, that are inspired by the photo collages of Hannah Hock, John Heartfield and Grete Stern. The artist builds her fine artworks from a combination of digital and traditional photographs, scanned wallpaper, cardboard and paint. The 'imperfections' are left visible, thus making the work a rich site/sight of construction including irregular cuts and pencil marks. 

The narratives are built from the artist's own biography, family artifacts, memories from her past and images of landscapes from traveling through Italy, Switzerland and Germany. All of these, she combines with photographs made in her New York home and her studio. 

Additional Edition:
18"x18" image on 24"x20" sheet
Silver Gelatin
