an exploration of contemporary western Jewish identity through collective memory, collected objects, inherited memory, inherited objects, and the act of defining a line between personal and universal experience.
Jewish culture and identity is deeply rooted in nostalgia and the past but also needs individuality and a future focus, and the negotiation between the two brings us to this glitch, this weird space where the memories are fading but we still feel stuck in them.
