In the video installation “ClingFilm” the artist examines what is transmitted unconsciously across generations. Using her grandmother’s photo album as a starting point – an album which shows arrangement of sausages instead of family portraits – she finds links between passive memory and the meat industry in postwar Germany. This video is set in a recreated slip-resistant flooring and white-tiled walls resembling a 1960s German butchery.And so through strategies of enlarging, reproducing and scanning, the artist investigates the potential of photography to carry an unknown past into the future and its close relationship to slaughter and death.
