Anna-Sophie Berger

Life and Limbs

The gallery becomes a mouth. It has four pointy teeth and is an aged, even sickly, shade of off-white. The teeth are walls, and on them hang artworks selected by Austrian artist Anna-Sophie Berger for the exhibition life and limbs, Swiss Institute’s fourth installment of its Architecture and Design Series.

 

Documenting and further exploring Berger's 2019 exhibition, the publication considers the human body across works drawing from speculative architectures, Surrealism, late twentieth-century fashion design, and other subjects of modern visual culture. The book essays by Annie Godfrey Larmon, Phillip Ekardt, and Anna-Sophie Berger.⠀
