“A single photograph of Angela Grauerholz always hints at a space that could be explored, a story that could be told or an object with history."
—Robert Fones (nominator), visual artist and 2011 winner
Angela Grauerholz reinvents admirably the duty to remember through photography. Through her lens, the photograph, book or installation becomes the locus of all experience – that of the artist, the viewer and a moment that no longer exists. Subjective, voyeuristic, omniscient, intimate and ambiguous, her careful gaze animates the photo or the installation to create a space that the public is invited to enter – that of the forgotten. A masterful exercise of memory, the work of Angela Grauerholz reveals an endlessly renewable reality, a theatre where the photograph shares, with us, the stage.
