The scripts of Romy Rüegger's performances: a constellation of texts, largely written to be spoken. The scripts as they are printed do not document the performances primarily. They are indications of spacial and temporal layering, juxtapositions of aesthetic and poetic elements and bodies. Overlapping every day observations with archival material, confronting, jumping.

Edition Patrick Frey
Through photographic documentation and essay, Altar documents the widespread human urge to elevate secular things to the status of “ritual objects” and combine them to form private altars. Whether they're dust catchers, knickknacks, souvenirs, found objects, meaningful artworks or earnestly and deeply revered objects, they all tell a peculiar story—not in words, but in things—about whoever built the altar.
