The eponymous “peripher” functions in the works of Andreas Tschersich, a Swiss artist based in Berlin, as a structural, aesthetic and mental moment. It refers to places of transit and transition that defies unequivocal classification, standardization and demarcation. Tschersich portrays cityscapes in which people, upkeep, habits and uses always remain hidden. The tenor remains the same regardless of whether the scene is set in Charleroi, Liverpool, New York or Tokyo. Tschersich’s pictures are universal and never seem foreign or forbidding, but ever familiar in their everyday banality. Thanks to Edition Patrick Frey (Zurich).
