“afraid suddenly / that this was all / there was to it.” (Ted Hughes)

The collective investigation of isolation und distance leads to a new sense of awareness – souvenirs transport these experiences into the here and now: Anna Zimmermann and Nadja Zerunian join forces to present nine objects, hand made from bronze, stone and glass, that embody the feeling of loneliness. The objects – so big (or small) that one can simply carry them away – act as mementoes of a feeling that is quickly forgotten as soon as one believes that one has overcome it.
