Rosa Schamal - Altar
bilingual edition (English / German)
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.
