Andrea Grützner is in German artist who is in Melbourne to present two bodies of work at the Centre for Contemporary Photography. Both projects are related to a specific guesthouse in Saxony, focussing on the architecture, history and activities of the space. Within her images, interiors become projection screens for generations of memories and emotions that have occupied the spaces.
Andrea Grützner (born 1984, Pirna, Germany) is a Berlin based artist and photographer. Andrea‘s medium is photography, but her pictures seem to shift between different media like photography, painting and collage. Her interests involve the perception of space, historic and memorial structures, visual irritation, the familiar and at the same time unfamiliar.

Andrea Grützner received both the "PhotoVision Sponsorship Award" and the "Source Cord Prize" in2014, as well as the "LEAD Award" (silver) in 2015 and was a winner of "gute aussichten – junge deutsche fotografie prize" in 2014/2015 and a FOAM Talent 2016.
