In Piller’s work the relationship between image and text is an important criteria for the classification of photographs. Where others might not notice anything particular, through repeated, concentrated observation the artist has developed a delicate sensibility that allows him to discern the hidden qualities of photographs taken for ordinary purposes. Arranged in groups and coded by titles, the found or assembled visual material is thus placed in a different context; Piller thus brings the images into a different artistic order. For example, Von Erde schöner (More Beautiful from Earth) was a large installation including countless images from an archive of aerial photographs of private homes taken in the 1980s; Nimmt Schaden (Suffer Damages) stems from the digital photo archive of a Swiss insurance company and is a quiet ode to the unknown photographer. With his Peripheriewanderungen (Periphery Walks) and the series Kraft (Power) and Schlaf (Sleep) we also discovered something about Piller as a photographer. Also in this latter context, the artist focuses on the realm of everyday life, lending our profane activities and rituals a humorous dimension through his perceptions.
Peter Piller – Document Control has been developed by Fotomuseum Winterthur in cooperation with the Centre de la Photographie, Geneva. The two-part exhibition was taking place simultaneously in Winterthur and Geneva. Additional partners were the Städtische Galerie Nordhorn and the Kunsthalle Nürnberg. The accompanying publication, the first collection of texts Peter Piller’s work in book format, has been published by Walther König.
