A census and an image presentation of the flora of the Swiss Canton of Neuchâtel, (within the frame of the project the Enquête Neuchâteloise), where the Swiss artist Olga Cafiero set them within a strong historical context, going back and forth with the past. The herbarium that the artist has built up over the course of my gatherings has been rephotographed in the studio.
After a BA in photography and an MA in art direction at ECAL, Olga Cafiero (Como, Italy, 1982) studied art history at University of Lausanne. Her work has been shown in exhibitions in Switzerland and internationally since 2008, and regularly published in international magazines since 2009.
