The word puzzle has different meanings. Most commonly it is an assembly of pieces, which show a small detail and when put together they produce a complete image. A puzzle can also be a question or person that is difficult to understand.
By collecting images from the catalogues of the Kunsthaus Zürich, Museum für Gestaltung and Sammlung Ringier, I created my one puzzle. It’s a puzzle consisting of fragments of photographies from Rineke Dijkstra, pieces of text describing the works of Cy Twombly and elements from Roza El Hassan video installations. Followed by my intuition, taste, aesthetic interest, I began to look through the catalogues and in a very spontaneous fashion I started collecting and combining the images that caught my eye. This exercise helped me find new readings for the individual art pieces and allowed me to contextualize them freely.
