Distant Relations

Exploring personal and universal Jewish diaspora before and after the Holocaust

Last chance: Exhibition through October 15

Lori Grinker engages personal history of her family's diaspora before and after the Holocaust; the work's power is proven in its ability to transcend the personal and symbolize a greater pattern. In Distant Relations Grinker traveled to Lithuania (2002), South Africa (2005), Ukraine (2008), and the US (2011). This is only the beginning of a larger project, for Grinker plans to voyage to Argentina, Israel, the United Kingdom and Germany to expand upon the work.

Images are intimate, quiet, and reflexive. We sense an unexplained familiarity with each frame, and we long for the ability to remember. Though scenes often lack a figure we feel a presence around us that we desire to engage. The works are not formulated, rather all encompassing- landscapes and homesteads, bureaus and vanities, street scenes and interiors, portraits and larger scenes of children at play. The diversity of frames leads us to believe deeply that a genuine truth was boiled to its essence the moment each space, face, or snippet was captured.
