DESCRIPTION

Lempert’s continued fascination with methods of communication, and more narrowly with language, leads her to explore the intertwined nature of cherished mementos and childhood reminiscences that make them precious. In her new work, Lempert consolidates complex and multifaceted family narratives held in the memory of the real life storytellers and connects them to a single inanimate object. Going a step further from her photographs, Lempert weaves stories, literally and figuratively reconstructing the memories in such a way as to create a repository for future hopes and dreams. These touchstones are forged from the very words they emote. Lempert’s first sculpture exhibition, Reconstructed Reliquaries, reveals for the viewer beautifully delicate, true size objects created from handwritten texts.
