Covering Series

 

The Covering Series explores Jewish identity via the mourning ritual known as Siting Shiva. The project was conceived as a way to contend with a personal loss by visually addressing the grieving process. The covered forms serve as personal symbols and are intended to evoke ancient aspects of the ritual which include the denial of vision by enrobing one's head. In the fall of 2019, work from this project will be included in the photo book, On Death, a KGProjects collaboration with Humble Arts Foundation.
