    Safta’s Living Room

    Mixed media Abbey’s grandmother’s living room is filled with a photographic history of her family.נDrawing from the influence of the Pop Art movement, and juxtaposing Western culture against her Syrian, Iraqi, and Jerusalem upbringing and her family, Abigail Caduri creates a rich, contrasting experience for her viewer. Set up like a playful reference to the living room of her own safta (grandmother), Caduri recreates her everyday surroundings with a deep focus on her family’s portraits. In this way, she is able to preserve and honor her own roots, her Sephardic, Jerusalem-raised, American identity and place within her family history as a whole, while creating an interesting and relevant dialogue that we all face in times of movement and cultural crossover. In each portrait Caduri focuses on the subject’s essence; playing with the concept of auras and light. By innovating and connecting traditional references to her historical narrative and its place in modern society, a four-seater chair in the center of the exhibition serves as a point of contemplation for the viewer; meant to be sat in, Caduri invites her viewers into her safta’s living room to reflect on these ideas and meditate on their own perspective.
