The Quest is on appropriation in writing, on sources no longer, on content through form, on poetry. Concealing, unveiling: A quest suggests change, is often allegorical, a plot device to introduce momentum into a narrative. Isolated and no longer attached to a context, the words were combined to verses, the verses placed on pages, the pages animated to a slideshow, the slideshow worked back into – these – pages. (Geraldine Tedder)
The Quest originates from the eponymous exhibition: Delphine Chapuis Schmitz – The Quest, curated by Christoph Schifferli and Geraldine Tedder, which took place in 2017 at Archiv (Erikastrasse 11, Zurich).
