Gauri Gill. Traces
13 June – 01 November 2018
Since 1999, Indian photographer Gauri Gill has spent extensive periods among marginalized rural communities in the desert of Western Rajasthan. ‘Traces’ is one of the photographic series drawn from her archive of images, ‘Notes from the Desert’. The portrayed burial sites are composed of stones, clay fragments, hand inscribed gravestones or personal items. A place is marked, memory is cultivated, with the utmost humbleness.

Among others with Antonin Artaud, Samuel Beckett, John Cage, Friederike Mayröcker to Michaela Mélian, Brandon LaBelle, Ahmet Ögüt or Natascha Sadr Haghighian.
