In the installation Radial Grammar, Batia Suter combines printed and projected images portraying objects of all sorts—some clearly identifiable and others rather ambiguous. We can recognize various ornate vessels, an array of shells and flowers, galactic or microscopic worlds—how to tell the difference?—a stadium. For a time, the gallery becomes an immersive atlas, its walls covered with large-format prints. Suter formulates a new syntax of the image: the interplay of association and correspondence forms a visual language. In this graphic encyclopedia, the reproductions take on new meaning through the connections that viewers make in their minds.
