Bugs eat through the pages of old Yiddish newspapers. Grandma gets greetings from her “homeland” and consequently forgets the lyrics of her favourite song. A waiting room becomes the setting for a fictional yet realistic narration. Video snippets recount unexpected observations. A shredder devours (hi)stories. Grass grows over all of it. Commemorative perforations. Memory gaps. Vacancies.

The exhibition MIND THE GAP by multi-media artist Elianna Renner presents new works and a selection of recent years. Additionally, the artist will present her most recent, interdisciplinary project “Tracking the Traffic” in an interactive performance. The projects enquires the biographical traces of jewish women that were abducted and forced into prostitution at the end of the 19th century.
