Artists and Exhibitions

 

Embodied Remembrance exhibition by Tamar Segev

Embodied Remembrance features paintings and prints that explore the connections between familial memory, historical narratives, and contemporary culture as they are embedded in the architectural surfaces of Lodz, Poland. From 1940-44, Segev’s grandmother and her family lived in the Lodz area in Nazi-occupied Poland. 

In 2019, Segev traveled there and saw remnants of what was left behind. In entryways and courtyards, where surfaces are marred by chipped paint and graffiti, the artist felt the gravity of the war and a material connection to their grandparents’ experiences. In these works, Segev foreground memory as a discursive, material practice, where active remembering ensures memory’s place in the present.

This exhibition is open in the Main Gallery at Memorial Union.
