Mezuzahs are small boxes containing scrolls of parchment that are traditionally nailed diagonally across the right side of a doorframe or courtyard entranceway. It is believed that mezuzahs protect the home from misfortune.
Bradley has created a stylized object made from organic glass and wood containing a visual mezuzah “identity” in place of the traditional scroll. With her work, Bradly hopes to return the mezuzah symbol to the streets of Kaunas, which was once home to so many Jews.
Venue and time of the presentation: TBC.
