Project OKNA

Art 2010-2011

Project OKNA is a multimedia installation inspired by diverse individual views and personal stories on the subject of Jewish identity coming from people within the Russian-speaking community. Through an artistic interpretation, Project OKNA explores the unique juxtaposition of Soviet/Russian past with Jewish identity. We are looking through the ‘windows’ into memories, unforgettable moments, conflict, rejection, and nostalgia. Video art and music create an immersive environment to raise important questions of ‘where we come from’ and inspire to understand ‘who we are’.

The installation opened at Nuyrican Poets Cafe on May 13, 2010.
