Carbon 12: Fantasías

Through her meditative daily practice in collage, Elisabeth Wild creates bold and dynamic compositions made up of cut-up pages of art and lifestyle magazines. In the words of Adam Szymczyk, Artistic Director of documenta 14, “The work emerges as sediment processed through the iconography of cool chic; pretty much anything, from lipstick advertising to the decor of luxury interiors to fashion accessories, can catch Wild’s attention. Hers is a magpie strategy: she collects pieces of world glitz and bling to free them from the commodity system and turn all-too-familiar pictures into new images. Wild’s kaleidoscopic worlds - she terms them Fantasías - exert their own, special allure.”
