Living between America and France, the photographer produced formal works with a logical rhythm, eventually moving from the structural forms of the landscape to the kitchen. It was inspired by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi, whose works are shown in the same gallery. Groover’s still life becomes the exhibition’s main focus, with her unedited images linking photography with the much older painter’s tradition of studying light, shadow, and fruit.
Despite showing at the New York MoMA in 1987, Groover was somewhat forgotten by the photographic canon—a mistake Zanot wishes to correct. “Her work has always been very important to me, but in the last 20 years it seems to have disappeared,” he comments. Groover’s still life is later shown with a purpose-built log house, inspired by her American home and attic studio.
