The exhibition presents a selection of photographs from the series Silence, which were created between 2009 and 2015.

About the series

The photographer and architect Gabriela Torres Ruiz shows how silence can be captured photographically and the associations it engenders. With a fine sense for the poetic interplay between light, color, and space, her Silence series juxtaposes landscape motifs and interior photographs in diptychs. The depicted decay of the buildings alongside enchanted alpine and forest landscapes make reference to the cycle between architecture and nature, which ultimately reclaims its environment. Not only do the photographs reveal a formal affinity in terms of their texture and nuanced color as a result of Torres Ruiz’s sensitive selection, but they also closely relate in content.
