Memory of a time I did not know...

 works on paper by Miriam Mörsel Nathan


Curated by Steven Cushner

September 15-December 17, 2010

 By piecing together fragments of information collected from family documents, letters and photographs, Mörsel Nathan’s work reveals an elusive story of personal history and ascribed memory. The exhibition includes a series of multi-colored monotypes and screen prints based on a photograph of her aunt Greta; a wedding series of her Uncle Josef’s 1941 wedding, complemented by a video created by her son, TV/film editor David Nathan; and her version of a pre-war “family album.”
