collage 2020 28”h, 22”w
This collage was made for an exhibition about Jewish Identity and Authenticity. I made a museum with myself as the subject. The following printed materials were used; my genetic code, my family tree, the 1910 and 1930 census that included my maternal grandmother and my father, family photos, my passports, my artwork, broken objects representing the destruction of Ashkenaz Jewry in Europe, Belarus gravestones and the kotel. The artifacts selected represent some of my tools while others are a tribute to my work with collections in Jewish museums.
