Soglia is a series of prints of the artist’s passage through the remaining gates of the ancient ramparts of Genoa in Italy, where she spent three months in residence.

Inspired by the rare fossils of human footprints and the wear often visible on old cobblestones, they capture the point of contact between V. E. Bossert’s strides and the ground, revealing its texture.

Each drawing recounts the passage from one side to the other of a wall that once demarcated the town, now fully integrated and a constituent part of the city. These traces recall the many humans who have done the same over the centuries, and reflect an internal process undertaken by the artist during the same period: that of exploring her own foundations and psychological barricades.
