a tale about siblinghood beyond nuclear family


When looking through a window, are we looking into the past, or the future?
We look through to imagine, then turn inwards to dream. 

The story that unfolds before you is resting somewhere between the walls of this space and the glass panes on the facade, but it much rather asks to be imagined. Imagine: once a family with twelve children lived in this space, with twelve stained-glass pieces decorating its window front. When they moved out, each sibling received one piece to keep as a memory.

This tale is about siblinghood beyond nuclear family, and belongs to the interrelated spaces between all things. Through imagery, Ira Grünberger looks for those connections in the Commonplace: tiny flowers wither on the hot surface of a car, while the same stinging rays of midday sun pierce a broken window. Composed as diptychs, the images are encompassed by steel frames, that never fully close. They provide space for stories to be told – a tale that is a tale of many.

Ira Grünberger is an interdisciplinary artist with a strong background in photography. They work across the mediums of photography and installation to explore the interconnectedness and temporality of human and non–human, and how their memory transcends and materializes in space. Photography, sculpture and writing are explored as tools to let memory surface and materialize, leading to a collaborative exploration of materials used in construction such as metal, glass, or clay. The research comes together in spatial re– and deconstructions where elemental and image–based processes are combined. In doing so, they aim to bend solid frameworks into something more palpable.
