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 statue.

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.

This sculpture aims to associate these traditions together and consider the connection between memory and trickery.
