sans shadow,

From the Reconstructed Reliquaries” series by Stephani Lempert.

Artist’s statement:

"My continued fascination with methods of communication, and more narrowly with language, lead to an exploration in the intertwined nature of cherished mementos and the childhood reminiscences that make them precious. Each piece consolidates complex and multifaceted family narratives held in the memory of the real life storytellers and connects them to a single inanimate object. Each object weaves stories, literally and figuratively reconstructing the memories in such a way as to create a repository. These touchstones are forged from the very words they emote. My first sculpture exhibition, Reconstructed Reliquaries, reveals for the viewer beautifully delicate, true size objects created from handwritten text.
