Andrea Grützner (1984) is a photographer living and working in Berlin. In the series Erbgericht, the artist depicts a traditional village guesthouse in rural Saxony (Germany), owned by the same family for five generations, since 1889. As the building has cast a spell on her for years, she is able to recount the memory of generations embodied in every corner of the interiors.
The analog pictures, taken in one shot without any alteration, are at the same time abstract and representational. Strong geometries are enhanced by flash colors and deep shadows, and the visual effects of alienation remind the most abstract works by Moholy-Nagy and Bauhaus artists.
Shadows are traces and marks that have a direct relation to the object, but through the projection, these objects can appear twice as big or transformed and changed, they take on their own lives (…) they work a lot like memories.
