spiral walk project 2002

The three borders of Switzerland, France and Germany meet in the middle of the Rhine river. Nearby is Basel’s dreiländereck (literally “3 lands place”) monument. Starting as close as possible to the point in the Rhine the artist walked an ever increasing spiral, negotiating borders, fences and customs posts creating a pictorial narrative of territory traversed.

This work was undertaken as part of the 2002 AFWA Basel artist in residence.
