FROM THE FAMILY ALBUM
Photography / Object, 2015-2016
From the Family Album restages old family photographs in the same or a similar setting.
For instance, one piece shows the artist’s husband in 1976 and the artist’s daughter in 2016 peeking through a Lozziwurm, a playground tunnel. While the first picture was taken at an actual playground, the second was taken in the Kunsthalle Zurich, during an exhibition dedicated to innovative and no longer existent architectural objects at playgrounds.
From the Family Album reflects on our fascination with old photos and the world of nostalgia in popular culture today.
The piece is accessed by using an authentic retro-view camera.
