Bea Eggli is a Venezuelan photo-designer born in Caracas and she graduated from the Bern School of Design in 2016. She has participated in several joint and individual exhibitions in Switzerland and France.
Her series CIUDADES INMATERIALES (Immaterial Cities) was on show in Encounters in 2017. This was a work of overlapping images that showed the intangibility of memories; echoes of cities that are part of our lives. It was a hunt for identity that oscillates between the objectivity of reality and the subjectivity of perception, becoming an invitation to discover or rediscover cities travelled calmly, in a slow and epicurean way.
Whilst Bea was in Encounters in 2017 she made a video about her work.
CIUDADES INMATERIALES arises from the impossibility of grasping a single emblematic memory of an entire city. Squares, bridges, towers and monuments are merged in the form of new vedutas in ten shots whose vertical lines match thanks to a carefully studied composition of all the layers. The final result presents a personal perception of the character of the city.
