Monica Ursina Jäger has created the print “translocation.45” (2016), in support of Peer Sessions - a peer crit group for practicing artists (peersessions.com) - all funds go to the cause. The edition is part of her widely acclaimed “translocation” series. It comes from an original collage on paper, which has been transferred into an edition of 60 Archival Pigment Prints (Giclée). The image size is 280mm x 380mm, printed on Hahnemühle Rag 308gsm 300mm x 400mm (paper size) – ready to mount in a standard sized frame.
Jäger's drawing series “translocation” is executed with pigment transfers and ink on concrete boards. Fine white lines trace geodesic and grid structures – blueprints for buildings that might be or once were. Modernist and Brutalist architecture fuses with organic matter. The series examines notions of overlap between time and space, the shifts that occur in a society in flux and the relations between lived, sensed, memorised and imagined space that result thereof. As part of the series, in 2014 Jäger published Topographies (Kodoji 2014), an accordion-folded book which reproduces a nearly 12 meter long collage one-to-one.
Monica Ursina Jäger is an artist and lecturer living and working in London and Zurich, and has been an active participant in Peer Sessions since its inception in 2009.

Jäger makes drawings, sculptures and installations through which she acknowledges the multifaceted nature of the spatial experience and the rich history of its representation. Interdisciplinary projects include urban planning, green infrastructures and narrative environments in public spaces. Jäger studied in Lucerne (CH), Singapore and London and gained her MA at Goldsmiths College, University of London (2008). She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally, including Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Museum Essl Klosterneuburg Vienna, Haus Konstruktiv Zurich, Kunsthalle Osnabruck, Galeria Pilar Sao Paulo.
