Series of 8 artist’s books. Since 2003 these two artists, both born 1964 in Graz, have been embarking on photographic forays into the Gries settlement, where they were raised, in the eponymous district of Graz—independently of one another and on a regular basis. They always take the same two paths, ones they had both often traversed during childhood on walks with family or relatives: the “long” and the “short” circuits. “Triester” is a rare long-term project with open documentation that eschews any kind of ascriptions or any projection of knowledge onto the issues at hand. Instead, it demonstrates interest in the chasms between memory, experience, history, and the present—allowing a narrative to emerge that resembles a temporal cartograph.
