Beate Gütschow: roomsheet and invitation


Installation view ST PAUL St Gallery One, 2011.

Beate Gütschow’s work with photography addresses the construction of imagery, both within the medium itself through the use of digital and analogue technologies, and the cultural conditions that influence the creation of imagery. Gütschow’s compositions reference 17th Century landscape painting, and architectural and documentary photography of the 1950s and ’60s. She draws from her archive of mostly analogue images of buildings, trees, landscapes and people to assemble digital composites. At first glance the final works appear convincing as real scenes, but on closer inspection the spaces and scenes are not quite genuine causing the constructed nature of imagery to become apparent.
