All That Remains
A Holocaust Exhibition in Fiber
Each of the pieces in this exhibition by Leslie Klein- whether garment, wall hanging, soft?sculpture or construction - is a conceptual work of art. Elements of design and? images from the Holocaust, symbolic and meaningful, echo throughout the work:?abstracted concentration camp stripes, airbrushed with body parts, the yellow star?and Jud...e calligraphy, bricks from the ovens and ghetto walls, a tangle of eyeglasses.?But every piece also contains within it faith in Torah, pride in our people, and? stubborn resistance to oppression.
