Michael Najjar

high altitude

In 2009, together with a six-person expedition group, the photographer and artist Michael Najjar climbed to the summit of Mount Aconcagua. At 6,962 metres, it is the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas. Najjars’s photographic material from the three-week expedition forms the basis for the visual worlds depicted in the “high altitude” cycle of works, which portrays the stock market performance of the world’s most important key indices over the last 20 to 30 years. The virtual number mountains on the stock market charts resublimate themselves in the materiality and solidity of the Argentinian mountain ranges – they symbolise the thin line between reality and simulation.
