Martina Sauter

Dusseldorf, DE

Alluding to the language of cinema, Martina Sauter’s (b. 1974, Germany) examines how photography has informed our collective memory of the past. Her enigmatic subjects perform life in visual snippets, disappearing around doorways, constructed corners or into phone booths. Nostalgic compositions - manifested in her latest work in retro-futuristic, cut-and-paste collage - evoke a familiar feeling, oscillating between the fictitious and the real. Sauter studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf alongside Thomas Ruff. Her solo exhibitions have taken place in Foam Photography Museum, Kunstverein Konstanz and Kunstverein Bochum.
