Edge of Alchemy


Edge of Alchemy


CATALOGUE TEXT
An ocean of whispering voices … In an alien landscape a female alchemist creates a good soul and beautiful idea, playing with the rules of nature – and losing her creation to the latter. Using the same alchemy, Stacey Steers mixes 19th century graphic reproductions, silent film scenes and loans from gothic novels to create an aesthetically stunning science fiction nightmare and a touching story about withheld love.

André Eckardt
