"Angela Grauerholz: Sententia I to LXII"
1999-07-10 until 1999-09-12
Allbright Knox Art Gallery
USA United States of America
The New Room of Contemporary Art presentation of Angela Grauerholz
showcases her newest work: Sententia I
to LXII. Delving into the way we organize
the plethora of images our world has
amassed, Grauerholz creates her own
archive: a tomb-size container of wood
that houses sixty-two images.
to Éclogue or Filling the Landscape, an
earlier archival piece (1995) that was only
accessible to the public by appointment,
all museum visitors will be able to slide
open Sententia I to LXII's doors and
view all of these places Grauerholz has
obsessively documented over the years.
The images are large scale, black-and-white photographs marked by
ambiguous spaces -- places that we can dream into. Her large
compositions are often of intermediate places -- of windows and doors,
hotel lobbies, people walking, train tracks, libraries, and indistinguishable
places in the landscape.
