The silent and continuous erosion trickling from the top of mountains, via glaciers, tropical forests, sand dunes, icefields of Patagonia, European glaciers into the ocean and the urban waterways of New York's harbor. Tracing an unbroken line, the eye is guided from one sweeping landscape to the next without doubting their separateness in location and origin, showing the interconnectedness of distant environments, opening up conversations between the different (political) landscapes in which we live. Renate Aller is a German living in New York. Her large-scale photographs are held in numerous museums including the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the National Gallery of Art, Washington D. C., the Yale University Art Gallery, the George Eastman Museum, the New York Historical Society Museum, the Mus e des Beaux-Arts, Le Locle, and the Parrish Art Museum.

About the Author

Born in Germany, Renate Aller lives and works in New York. The Space Between Memory and Expectation is her fifth monograph published with Radius Books, following Mountain Interval, 2018, Ocean Desert (2014), dicotyledon (2012), and the long-term project Oceanscapes - One View - Ten Years (2010). Together, the four series represent the artist's investigation into the relationship between Romanticism, memory, and landscape in the context of our current sociopolitical awareness. Aller's artworks are in corporate and private collections, as well as museums, including Lannan Foundation, National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, George Eastman Museum, New Britain Museum of American Art, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Chazen Museum of Art, and Parrish Art Museum.
