book - bath in brilliant green 

With its melancholic visual language, Nina Röder’s book BATH IN BRILLIANT GREEN presents a poetic perspective on different forms of helplessness and loss. In associative arrangements of portraits, landscapes, and still life motifs – often created in darkness – she approaches states of loss and rediscovery, as well as the metaphor of letting go.

Staged images of marble-like bodies, often in a performative correlation with the surrounding nature, question the meaning of human existence. Her works frequently depict natural structures and vegetal artifacts, such as bits of algae or thistles in an absurd form.

Röder’s images were created in Italy, Iceland, Ireland, Spain, and France over the past five years. The book contains the series BATH IN BRILLIANT GREEN, A LITTLE DEEPER THAN YOU THOUGHT und ALWAYS BEYOND.
In its dramaturgy, the book captures the different chromatic atmospheres of these countries.
