Monica Ursina Jäger’s work is characterised by an engagement with the natural and constructed environment. In drawings, sculptures and objects, she explores the dynamic tension inherent in the differently determined views of nature, landscape and architecture as socially, societally and culturally charged spatial constructions, as well as utopian categories.
