Sonja Feldmeier
based on a true story

Cover Feldmeier Front Lores

“based on a true story” presents a new work complex by Sonja Feldmeier, one that is highly ramified both in terms of its content and of the media it uses. A spectacular tree felling in northern India challenged the artist to document the event and to think ahead in an inventive manner. Her video work “The Peepul Tree” explores the sacrilege against a sacred natural monument; stills from the video accompany the artist’s on-site log-book.

About the product

“based on a true story” presents a new work complex by Sonja Feldmeier, one that is highly ramified both in terms of its content and of the media it uses. A spectacular tree felling in northern India challenged the artist to document the event and to think ahead in an inventive manner. Her video work “The Peepul Tree” explores the sacrilege against a sacred natural monument; stills from the video accompany the artist’s on-site log-book. A series of large-format, opulent pictures explores the protagonists’ “inside views.” The  idiosyncratic pictorial constructions of “The Peepul Tree” are based on the artist’s synesthetic perception, which also has acoustic reverberations—QR codes allow users to call up sound compositions specially developed for “The Peepul Tree.” Moreover, the book assembles essays by authors active in interdisciplinary fields who shed light on Feldmeier’s work from different perspectives.
