Laurence Aëgerter

The Netherlands, Amsterdam

In an on-going process which oscillates between projects in public space, photography and artist’s books, Aëgerter’s work addresses the permanent transformation that lies in the essence of things. She examines the archive that shapes our collective memory. Displacement and translation play an important part in her work. Accurate reconstruction coexists with staged coincidence.
Over the past years she has exhibited in several international solo and group shows. Recent solo exhibitions include: Le Louvre, MAMAC Nice; The Modernists and More, Hermitage Museum Amsterdam; Herbarium Cataplasma, Fries Museum, Leeuwarden. Recent group shows: From Here On, Arts Santa Monica Museum, Barcelona/ FoMu, Antwerp; Les rencontres de la photographie, Arles; Making Africa, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; Quickscan #2, Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam. In 2016 Aëgerter was awarded with the International Photography Nestlé Price, Festival Images, Vevey (CH).
