The piece was created with the support of the Museum of Jewish Montréal and Montréal en Lumière, in response to Philip Szporer and Marlene Millar’s video installation, 1001 Lights.
What stood out to me in 1001 Lights was the richness of detail and the possibility revealed by darkness, silence, and the unknown. The feminist ethnographic elements of the work also spoke to my interest a sociological perspective anchored in sensorial memory and conversations with loved-ones and collaborators.
