Two-channel video installation, 12m 52s, Dimensions Variable
With wry humor, Tamar Latzman explores the nature of memory -- real and fictional -- by recalling five dreams in two different modes. Derived from themes of twentieth-century Jewish-European history, the artist describes memories of various dreams she has experienced. At the same time, on the second channel, the same dreams are presented in a quiet and poetic way, absent of people. The work observes the relationship between spoken language and text, and raises questions of identity, collective memory, and cultural stereotypes.
