Elisabeth EITER interacts with what is given, takes it out of its context and exposes it. By doing this, she provides the premises for an experience that is strongly rooted in what can be found in an extreme-natural outback. There is something about the works that is retraceable. With their particularly direct and vivid connection to nature, formations are left to their own devices.
