Listening Chair Sculpture


by Shirah Rubin
Video by Eliora Ancowitz

I created this piece for my family to be used before specific Jewish holidays associated with remembrance - yizkor. The video intersperses videos of my childhood with those of my children, in this case curated and edited by my 12-year-old daughter. I am interested in how these videos preserve memory and spark a dialogue of reminiscing. 


Come to the opening at Raw Emotion on 5/15 at Jameson & Thompson Gallery at 18 Bartlett Square in Jamaica Plain, Boston.
