In Remembrance of Destruction
62 x 48 cm open-edition offset print, 2009
“In Remembrance of Destruction” is a print designed to be mounted on the wall according to the Jewish custom of leaving an unpainted patch in a new house, in remembrance of the destruction of the Holy Temple:
“Once the Temple was destroyed, the sages declared that we should never build a building that is completely plastered and rendered in the style of buildings of kings, rather one plasters his house, renders it with a coating, and leaves a space of one Ammah by one Ammah without coating.” (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim, 560:1)
The “unpainted” portion of the print measures exactly one Ammah by one Ammah (48 x 48 cm).
