Naama Oppenheim | Lacrima





The multi-media installation "Lacrima" investigates how objects with the function of shedding tears are given meaning in their aesthetic and socio-political contexts. Naama investigates control and concealment mechanisms built throughout human history in a space designed between a Cabinet of Curiosity and taxonomic exhibits.

The visitor enters a multisensory experience, looks at exhibits behind precise observation posts, answers subversive questions about crying behind perceptual confessional cells, and listens to a sound that mimics the process of creating tears of various types.
