Along the Way

Georges Schwizgebel
Chemin faisant
Switzerland 2012 / 4’

I can only think while walking: my brain can only move with my feet, is how Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 18th century nature eulogist, recommended walks. As far as George Schwizgebel is concerned, however, the camera wanders moving through time and space, it forces its way through various aesthetics and styles on its journey, showing the history of art in numerous incarnations: from mimesis to abstraction.
