Neuland, a solo exhibition of paintings, drawings and photographs by Sabine Moritz opens at the Kunstverein Bremerhaven from Saturday July 8. Moritz’s work is a manifestation of memory and release. She returns repeatedly to specific scenes from her childhood that have become indelibly imprinted on her psyche. Some works are created entirely from memory, while for others she interrogates the strength of her visual recollections by studying reportage photographs, newspapers, family album snapshots, and other found images. Her paintings portray the personal and collective history of, and the passing of, a period in time.
