Terra Cognita

Tessa Verder

The Day the World Whispered (2009-present)

During the Industrial Revolution German romantic painters – Caspar David Friedrich in the lead – combined elements from different landscapes to their heart’s content in order to expose the sublime and approach ‘true feeling’. A mass of rocks from Rügen could therefore end up next to a tree from Dresden. In this series Tessa Verder puts trees from paintings into her photographed landscapes. She too no longer shuns combinations, now that man once again appears to be in search of the restoration of contact with nature.
