Lisbeth Zwerger

Also at Bologna I had the fortune to be able to see Lisbeth Zwerger's interpretation of 'Alice in Wonderland' from 1999. This is a much more serious, contemplative and for me, disturbing version of the story.
I think this is mainly due to Alice's lack of expression. Because of the very calm, interpretation in dreamy watercolour washes, this work is very distant and removed from the viewer. Making you feel just like you are in a dream, a silent observer unable to intervene.
