Familial Ground

The other night, I was in Fredericton for an opening and artist talk at Gallery Connexion of "Familial Ground" by photographer Rafael Goldchain. It is a series of self portraits portraying the artist as his relatives, as he says: "detailed reenactments of ancestral figures, and can be understood as acts of naming linked to mourning and remembrance."
