Naama Roth is a visual artist working mainly with installation and site-specific works. The starting point of her creative process is often the space itself: elements such as windows or doors as well as invisible aspects such as certain historical and political contexts. Many of her works are biographically inspired or include the social environment.
“home for me is the place that one belongs to, the roots one sprouted from. I believe that wherever we will wander and no matter how far our feet will take us, we will always carry our home with us.”
The work series krinitzi 45, apt. 6 is dedicated to Naama Roths grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor, who died a few years ago at the advanced age of 92. She had been a photographer and her home had always been the setting of unique visual happenings. As a tribute to her grandmother, Naama Roth used the medium of photography exclusively, for the first time. All photographs are taken in her grandmother’s house which had remained unchanged. They show details of the furnishings as if fallen out of time, subtle motifs of great aesthetics and calm in which the absence of a loved one becomes evident.
