Andrea Tese: Inheritance

Andrea Tese: Inheritance
Library Shelf Location 18.TESE
Publication Date 2015

Clothing, bottles, appliances—relatable objects that serve as the basic accessories of daily life, Inheritance is a deeply personal series for Andrea Tese. The photographs document the mourning process following the passing of her grandparents, rearranging their possessions into pictorial compositions to chronicle their lives through a plethora of simple objects. Despite the potential sentimentality of the project for both the artist and her audience, Tese’s photographs are abstracted by her deadpan treatment of the subject matter, organizing items into grids and piles that allow the objects to assert themselves individually as well as en masse to the audience. When viewed together, Inheritance is notable both as a portrait and for the overwhelming volume of items in her inventoried presentation.
