CUNY JANSSEN »THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE AIR« – selected by ANDREAS MÜLLER-POHLE

»Cuny Janssen shows images of South Africa — impressive rocky landscapes next to desolate suburban settlements, colorful flowering cacti next to frowning faces … all this we have seen before. But instead of turning it into an airy cloud of pretty associations, this book virtually chops up its material. The images run wild across the double pages, they repeat themselves, they anticipate and then refer back: a challenging, an arduous syntax. “THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE AIR” excites me because it ads to its genre a bold, fresh form of speech. Those who only flick through this book haven’t taken up its challenge; it needs to be ingested, to be digested.«
