POETRY OF THE EARTH is the new book by Swiss artist Maya Rochat, published by Art & Fiction.
By relying on the experimentation of printing technologies, the sensuality of the material invites itself on the pages of the book, expressing the poetry of the language of printed arts.
Through painting, photography and text, it is a journey towards a dreamlike version of the living that appears and the work then becomes a kind of fantasized atlas of this fragile organic world in transformation.
The publication of this artists’ book coincides with Maya Rochat’s exhibition « Poetry of the Earth » at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris June–October 2023.
