A reflection of post Holocaust art practices.
Symbolic Acts project started with a critique and commentary on book-alteration practices. I sought contributions from artists and then burnt them and used the ash to make paint.
The actions and results of the destructive remaking are presented in a reflective photo-essay / artist book, Symbolic Acts. This was shown in Engagement and Entrapment (curated by Diana Ali) in Tel Aviv, and is part of The Floating Library, Minnesota.
The video is footage of burning pages of artwork and a reading by the artist author of the reflective memoir text. Selected for Axisweb’s video essay playlist .
