    About the Exhibit

    These masks are sculptural gesture drawings. By gesture I mean direct, without over-thinking. That doesn't mean they are quick--that flash of response saying this mask wants to have, for instance, a thinner exhaust pipe section requires cutting, bending and welding. Even when that alteration is complete, another may be needed--it may still not feel right. This face wants to be brought into the world and I have to be midwife with an angle grinder and a MIG welder.I work by response and not pre-conceived ideas. These car parts and shovels speak to me—if they stop speaking, I put them away until I find their voice again.

    The impetus to use car parts springs primarily my belief that we’ve lost our landscapes to cars. There are too many of them. We need to wake up and see what we’ve done to our world. We need to ask ourselves if this car-centric world with its risks to our planet, our health and our society is the world we want. Also, because we junk over 12 million cars a year in North America, there are infinite multiples of parts for me to work with--parts that are incredibly complex and beautiful.

    100mezuz SMLOctober 31 – November 27, 2019
    Tues November 5, 2:30 pm guided tour

    Combining contemporary photography and archival research, this original exhibition takes visitors on a journey across Poland with young Warsaw-based artists and Judaica designers, Helena Czernek and Aleksander Prugar. Visitors will receive a behind-the-scenes look at their remarkable project to locate and preserve traces of mezuzot still found on doorposts of homes, gateways and apartments across Poland. They cast a bronze mezuzah from a mold made out of the space left behind by the mezuzah that once hung there. They create meaningful, beautiful Jewish ritual objects for today’s home while commemorating Jewish homes abandoned during the Holocaust. To date, Helena and Aleksander have visited over 70 cities and towns, extending their journeys into Ukraine, Belarus and Romania. The exhibition highlights a handful of the more than one hundred mezuzot they have created under the banner of their company, MI POLIN. Discover MI POLIN’s surprising and inspiring story of making Jewish art in Poland today.
    Co-presented by The Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, Fentster and The Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre. Generously supported by the UJA Kultura Collective.
