Ines von Ketelhodt — In Vino Veritas
(Ines von Ketelhodt) In Vino Veritas. Design and photography by Ines von Ketelhodt. Flörsheim. 2008. 40p. 11.5” x 8.25”. Leporello format. Twenty color photographs of bottom parts of broken Roman amphoras found in the Mediterranean Sea. The text quotations are put together into a kind of text-collage and printed in letterpress onto the photographs in red or black. Text printed on both sides. Photographs digitally printed. Brown linen board covers with black background to printed title on front. No. 9 in an edition of 40 copies, signed by von Ketelhodt. Fine.
If the concertina is unfolded, the amphora-parts get in movement: they fall down and stand up again. Because of the wine which was carried in the amphoras, von Ketelhodt chose quotations from different fairytales by the Grimm Brothers in the original German, that contain the word “Wein” (wine).
