Artists Statement on Reciprocity
My daughter Maya is a photographer and I am an assemblage artist. we have collaborated on several occasions, especially when working on memory and family pieces.
“Vorgarten Market” is a collaboration of Maya’s black and white photo of my mother Gisela shopping at her favorite fish shop in Vienna at the beginning of her Dementia.
The “upstairs” portion of the assemblage box is the foyer of her dark
apartment, with a photograph of the wallpaper and vintage miniature furniture, as well as the narrow toilet adjacent to the foyer, which had no heating and was freezing cold in the winter.
Gisela was a holocaust survivor, very frugal, she could make the best meals from very little ingredients in her tiny kitchen. In her final years she started forgetting recipes, so she went across the street to the farmer’s market and bought freshly made fish filets with potato salad. The piece is our tribute to her.
