To re-member is to reconnect to the whole story of our lives—the people, the places, the events, good and bad, that have shaped us. This pop-up series of events invites thoughtful reflection on the liminal spaces in our lives—those stories which lie between our experiences of being lost and the surprise of being found again, often in unexpected ways.
Taking place during the week of “thin places” where the lines between the realms is permeable, it is All Souls in the Christian tradition, Day of the Dead in Mexican culture and All Hallows Eve in pagan religions. We remember the ancestors, the saints, the beloved ones, the memories and invite them—if only momentarily—to be with us once again.
The art featured in this show was lost for a long time: Martha Johnson’s exquisite collages and paintings, created during a particularly dark time in her life, were stuffed in a closet for 15 years. Sig Feller’s extraordinary pottery, jewelry and woodworking were found in a musty basement by his family, several years after his death.
