Picture of the Month


The artist Peter Baracchi spent one month at the research station Jungfraujoch for one of his projects. Each day he built a snowman, which he photographed and documented. After a day in the sun, exposed to the weather and the tourists, the snowmen are transported inside the building and melt. The melt water is collected and filtrated. The complete residues of the snowmen are collected, dated and archived. At the end there will be thirty individual and unique artworks, which consist of the conserved fragments of the snowmen and the corresponding Polaroid-photo. Photos: © Peter Baracchi
