Eva Stenram - 'New Meridians' at Literaturhaus Berlin

Literaturhaus Berlin (DE)
Soloshow: May 5 - June 4, 2019


Eva Stenram’s “New Meridians” is a new series of 11 pictures, made especially to coincide with the 2019 European elections and the ‘European Holiday’ here at Literaturhaus Berlin.

The source images of these pictures are all appropriated from photographs found in late 1950s editions of the German travel magazine ‘Merian’. They are a record of the landscapes and towns of Europe as they were at the time of the Treaty of Rome, the beginning of the EEC, in 1957. Looking back at these pictures, Stenram overlays them with her own markings: vectors, cords and tangents suggesting new alignments, but vague enough to refrain from imposing a fixed key or cipher. The cartographic annotations suggest many things - lines of communication, movements of people or goods, borders, usage of the landscape, as well as systems and laws being put in place - but also fractures, fault-lines, rifts. In 2019, the lines in Europe, which held for so long, are once again uncertain. Grids and demarcations are being erased and redrawn, new meridians are being created.

It is part of Europäischer Feiertag / European Holiday - Political Dreams, curated by Priya Basil to coincide with the European elections. Tickets for the event on 5 May are available here.
