In this series of nine works on paper on alu-dibond, Rebecca Raue sets a point of reference at a specific moment in time by investigating various 19th century photographs. The portraits are the central element around which dreamlike landscapes evolve.
With THE HOUSE SHE NEVER ENTERED the artist reflects the reality of an upper-class woman, wearing a fancy dress and posing in front of the camera. Raue is fascinated by the impact that the emotional experiences of our ancestors still have on our lives today. The individual story intertwines with the world, thereby creating a spiderweb of symbols, words, and colors.
