My Bridal Chamber: My Marriage Contract

"My Marriage Contract" has 4 columns of myself as a bride of 18 years of age, holding up the canopy. The wording of the Marriage Contract "Ktuva," refers to me as Helene "Virgin daughter of Anshel" (i.e., my father with no mention of my mother.) 
 

 


Dedicated to the mothers whose names were omitted on the happiest and the saddest of occasions: the marriage of a child and the death of a child. 
 

 A photograph (highlighted where the mother's name was omitted) of my late husband's headstone is on the floor of the platform in the installation.
