For the new Kaiserhaus, Annina Arter created a collaged narrative for downtown Bern. In the tradition of the historic panorama wallpapers from the 19th century, an opulently staged transition from day to night paves the way for the viewer to a place of longing. Building blocks of these worlds are botanical illustrations from natural history archives, silhouettes and photos.

One moon that's bright, another that's blue, A fish in the grass, and a small moth, too.

The project “Off the Wall” expands Annina Arters product range with woven murals. The scenes and the narratives depicted set unique accents in the room, convey sensuality and respond to the current need for more comfort and warmth. The murals take up the present longing for strange worlds in which one can lose oneself and discover things. They create a surreal exile, a projection surface through which the viewer can escape reality for a moment. Botanical hand paintings, cyanotypes, paper cuttings and photos are digitally collaged in images. Peculiar, hidden details, naive and absurd combinations are particularly noticeable. - Textile pictures, a little "off the wall"! Thanks to the digital jacquard weaving on a fine polyester warp, an almost photo-realistic implementation of the designs achieved possible. The project was nominated for the Swiss Design Awards in 2021.
