A Wandering Memorial Exhibition
The work, which is actually a guided exhibition through the recreated apartment of Nadav’s mother, forces us to ask questions about grief, about the legacy people leave behind and about how memory can be shaped and re-shaped.
Accompanied by two actresses who act as Memory Stewardesses Nadav invites the audience to visit the unique Memorial Exhibition he created for his mother, to get to know her life via the different objects, letters, books, lists and dresses she left and eventually invites us to play Mother Quartets!
By this action of recreating the house where is mother has lived for 50 years, Nadav raises the question we are all concerned with – What is left from us after we die? Are we the sum of the things we leave behind? How do we deal with grief and loss of our loved ones? Can we re-shape their memory with the help of all the little objects and mementos they left? Can we hold on to their memory but let go of the objects?
