The installation Porcelain Past explores the concept of porcelain tableware as a repository for fading memories.
Designed as an immersive experience, the installation space will include scores of porcelain objects that upon touch, light up from within, exposing a hidden porcelain lithophane. The images for the lithophanes will depict pre-war imagery of daily life in Jewish communities across Europe, sourced from both personal and public archives.
By creating an immersive experience, the installation environment will bring to life the narratives and memories assigned to porcelain heirlooms. In conjunction with the current migrant crisis, the work will invite the viewers to reflect on how all immigrants and refugees, from all societies, leave behind rich memories of normalcy, culture and love.
The project is currently being developed at the Belger Arts Center, Kansas City, MO, and set to debut September 2019.
