ANGELA GRAUERHOLZ "WINDOW" 1998
Angela Grauerholz (b. 1952, Hamburg, Germany) has been living in Montréal since 1976.
Grauerholz is a well-known photographer whose work touches upon contemporary practices of minimalism, conceptualism and installation.
Grauerholz’s photographs investigate the camera’s ability to isolate a specific moment in time or memory and then document it, and consequently enrich it with meaning.
"Window" presents an inconsequential moment and place, but when captured by the photographer it is instantly made more significant, identifiable, and emotional.
In 2006 she won the Prix Paul-Émile Borduas (Quebec) and had a major exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in 2010.
Grauerholz participated in the Biennale of Sydney, Australia, the Documenta IX and the Carnegie International (Pittsburgh) (1995).
