“[…] The book here is no longer considered in terms of its contects but for what determines and defines its container. Only an artist could successfully effect such a metamorphosis. In this wonderland, Wüthrich’s work explores a singular world that has something of the cabinet of curiosities, as regards the fabulous dimension of such entities. The book was a totemic element in the Wunderkammers of times past, an object of delectation for connoisseurs. And so it remains with Peter Wüthrich, the only difference being the fundamental transmutation he makes it undergo overturns its ordinary use. The book is no longer a place of knowledge or illustration, but the raw material for the invention of new treasures. Or even, of new monuments.”
