Galerie B-312 is pleased to present Conversations With My Family by artist Rachel Echenberg. By bringing together both the performative and the symbolic, this photographic and video project allows us to enter into the intimate relationships through the members of one family. In what ways, by what means and by what gestures are private filiations inscribed within a family? What is the weight and content of these bonds? How can we measure them?
As we travel the world as never before, discovering communities, countries and people, we are also building walls, marking borders, to distinguish ourselves in this global hubbub. In this incessant movement of openness, curiosity and discovery, fracture lines are being drawn at the same time - withdrawals, cracks, closures. Like Narcissus who is lost in the mirror of the world, stunned by its shimmering and blinding reflections. Citizens of the world, who exactly are we?
