Judit Villiger takes her recollections of literary works and interweaves them with components of art history and her own subjective elements to translate them into new images. In doing so, she fabricates settings – stages without protagonists – inviting viewers to journey beyond them in their minds and to complete their own version of the tales depicted in the literary scenes she has created, based on Jules Verne’s ‘The Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ or Dante’s journey through the netherworld, among others. Judit Villiger is a hunter and collector of pictures. She renders her finds in three-dimensional miniature models and large-scale installations and captures the final result in photographs. An account of her works is given in this book, settings which remain suspended between reality and models.
