In Compositions synesthétiques (Dürer), Aëgerter has drawn lines on ten of her favorite engravings by Albrecht Dürer.
Her compositions, printed in the true format of the originals, are meticulously screen printed with colourful and tangible lines in gravel, braille, and rubber. The lines, colour, and texture effects highlight parts of Dürer’s depictions, revealing a realm of subjective interpretations.
The full series of 10 silkscreened prints is gathered in an archival box edition.
