The assemblage artist, whose unique 'box art' creations address
controversial issues such as paedophilia and gay marriage - as well
as the highly personal themes of ancestry and forced exile, will
have her first UK showing at Woolfson & Tay bookshop, cafe and
gallery space this month.
Scheduled to coincide with the celebration of American
Independence, Boxed In presents a series of boxes in which the
artist weaves together cityscapes and microscopic worlds by
overlapping photographs and aligning them to form complete
"I have always felt like an outsider, growing up as a Jew in
Austria, being a woman and a lesbian, and my art allows me to
reflect that perspective. I collect moments and glimpses of
forms, colors, and objects wherever I go, photographing
things that are pieces of a puzzle to be put together later in an
art piece," she told DIVA.
To launch the exhibition tonight at 7pm, Woolfson & Tay will
host a free public event with a guided talk by Dwora Fried,
readings by US-based English poet Charlotte Innes, and a special
performance by actresses Stephanie Ellyne and Erin Hunter.
