Perpetuation Site

A pillar assembled from small rocks is manipulated to resemble a Cairn: a pile of stones placed by hikers to mark a path in nature or playfully create a provisional outdoors sculpture.
In the Jewish tradition, it is common to leave a small rock on the surface of a grave when visiting a cemetery, as a symbolic gesture that ties a connection between the deceased and the living.

Perpetuation Site is installed alongside the video Negative Spaces. The sculpture follows the conceptual framework of Negative Spaces that explore the politics of memory and its deceptive nature.
