2016, Printed parchment paper, linen thread, wax and screenprints on newsprint
As I continued to find ways to defy the boundary’s form I chose my material carefully so as to uphold my departure from the wall and work within three-dimensional space. I found this transition from the prints on the walls and then into the surrounding space, in which the relationship of discrepant figures was critical as they converged in their contorted forms alluding to the clutter of the ghetto.
The printed images on the walls were located within Terezin and primarily derived from the images that were used as propaganda during the Red Cross inspection of 1944. The figures, made of parchment paper that had been imprinted with the same prints that were located on the walls, I bound with blue and golden yellow threads, alluding to the confinement of space within the ghetto and to the deformation of the body.
The figures converge in ways so that the discrepancy of their bound anatomy realizes new geometry and activates the space. A sensibility of beauty is again found alternatively to the otherwise deceptively beautified ghetto during the Red Cross inspection.
