Letters from my Grandparents: Ruth Schreiber

January 9, 2011 - July 24, 2011
Mezzanine Gallery

Israeli artist Ruth Schreiber's sculpture installation is her attempt to come to know her grandparents through copies of the letters they sent to their children who left Germany for England following Kristallnacht in November 1938. The paper masks made from the letters and stretched over mold's of Schreiber's children's faces, are complimented by a historical exhibition on the experience of her family as told in their own words. Schreiber's work will resonate with anyone who seeks to know something of always-to-be unmet people in the past.
