Investigating the tensions between the touristification of the Kazimierz neighborhood in Krakow and the historical trauma signified by the quarter. I will call on participants to step into the act of grief and mourning through the very tactile and personal performance of taking stones, like souvenirs, and then leaving them, in the act of Jewish remembrance. Commissioned by the Jewish Culture Festival 2021.
