Event description

Description

Join artist and author Bernice Eisenstein for an illustrated talk on how she has come to understand memory and way it passes through us, informing our understanding and perception of the world.

There are many meanings for the word "shadow." An area of relative darkness; a hint or faint semblance; a reflection; protection, shelter; the dark portions of a picture; a spectre; an inseparable companion. These meanings resonate with Bernice Eisenstein’s practise as an artist, working with words and images, through portraiture and collage, painting over the pages of existing books.

Bernice Eisenstein is the author of the highly acclaimed graphic memoir, I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors, recipient of the Jewish Book Award. It was adapted into a NFB animated short film. Her most recent book, Correspondences, is a collaboration with writer Anne Michaels. Bernice’s artwork has appeared in exhibitions in Europe and the United States, and Richmond Hill Public Library will have a display of her work.
