Our collaboration with @81leonardgallery On view for the final two weeks of “PAUSE: Jewish Heritage Month/Ways of Being” are works by Joel Silverstein and Richard McBee. Both Silverstein and McBee’s works filter biblical perspectives through a modern imagination.
At our collaborative exhibit with @81leonardgallery : Ali Shrago-Spechler’s (@ali.shrago.spechler) work considers cultural transition through the use of cardboard, a material which embodies impermanence and exchange. Using cardboard to construct various tchotchkes, photographs, ritual objects, and books pulled from her family oral history and archives pertaining to Ashkenazi Jewry, Shrago-Spechler highlights the displacement of European Jewish cultural heritage during the Holocaust on a large-scale and individual level.
@81leonardgallery Yona Verwer’s (@yona_verwer) paintings Hebban Olla Vogala 1 and Hebban Olla Vogala 2 reference the first three words of one of the earliest texts in Old Dutch, which translates, according to the artist, as “all the birds have made their nest except for you and me.” A Dutch expatriate and Jewish convert, Verwer crafts a language of recurrent symbols, including submarines representative of Jonah’s whale, to tell an ongoing story of spatial, spiritual, and cultural transition.
