Angela Grauerholz: Sententia I to LXIIApr 8 — Jun 10, 2000

  • Installation shot, Museum of Contemporary Photography, 2000

Angela Grauerholz’s exhibition questioned the veracity of information housed in historic archives and underscored the role of the archive as a place of intellectual “travel.” Sententia I to LXII (1998) was comprised of sixty-two images housed in a specially made wooden cabinet that resembled a piece of antique library furniture, a fine retail display case or, when closed, a tomb. To see the images, the viewer was required to slide the photographs from the case one at a time. The massive cabinet suggested permanence, importance, and authority. In contrast, the photographs were ambiguous and moody, soft-focus images of transitional spaces: windows, doors, railroad tracks, a fleeting glimpse of passers-by.
