ANDREAS TSCHERSICH: PERIPHER. Edition Patrick Frey, Zurich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 166 pp. 25 x 33 cm. ISBN 9783906803074 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: For photo-based Swiss artist Andreas Tschersich (b. 1971), Peripher refers to an aesthetic and structural moment when places of transit and transition have exceeded classification, standardization and demarcation. To capture this moment, the artist has combined assorted medium-sized negatives to create large urban images without perspectival distortion. The final large-scale prints create a haunting series that explores a peopleless and what looks like abandoned city landscapes but are actually various cities around the world, Charleroi to Detroit, Kawasaki to Liverpool and into New York City. The more than 90 photographic montages presented in the publication capture the artist's cool minimal urban work to date. The subject matter of this digitally constructed work firmly roots Tschersich in the mid- and late 20th-century photographic tradition of recording man's relationship to the built environment represented by the banal unpeopled cityscapes of the New Topographics and the architectural folios of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Tschersich lives and works in Berlin.
