Kaspar Müller for Ricola

Kaspar Müller fotografierte eine rote Glaskugel vor einem hochalpinen Panorama. Die Aufnahmen für dieses Bild entstanden in einem Walliser Bergdorf unterhalb der Baumgrenze mit Blick auf den Grande Dent de Veisivi (3418 m ü. M.), den Dent de Perroc (3676 m ü. M.) und den westlich vom Matterhorn gelegenen und von der Kugel verdeckten Dent d’Hérens (4171 m ü. M). Kaspar Müller untersucht mit seinen Arbeiten die Wahrnehmung einer Realität, die selbst schon Bild oder Zitat ist: Populärkultur und Warenwelt halten dafür viele Beispiele bereit, die er in seinen Werken aufgreift und künstlerisch befragt.
