Petra Wunderlich applies a refined and didactic approach to create stoic black and white photographies that carefully examine the architectural facades of the picturesque and romantic villages of the eponymous region in Switzerland in the solo exhibition 'La Plaiv'.

Wunderlich studied under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and became part of the student generation of the Düsseldorf School of Photography. Today, she maintains the Düsseldorf School's tradition of strict documentation through tightly cropped photographs that lend the subject of each work a distanced but discreet gaze. Her pragmatic approach and the serialisation of the photographs take up sober themes in style and content and reinforce the architectural geometries that characterise this Swiss landscape - as well as the mysterious absence of its inhabitants.
