"Visiting Grandma"

“Visiting Grandma” This exhibition deals with the sweet-sour duality of remembrance. Torn between the comforting warmth of an idealized past and artifacts of the extreme harshness of loss, the room highlights the absurd juxtaposition present in the mind of the beholder. The familiarity of a carpet, facing faded family portraits, kept in salt and a magnified version of a still life painting is disturbed by the unavoidable presence of an unknown yet recognizable clinical attempt at repairing life.
