Family Portrait

Family Portrait
Rachel Echenberg
March 8-26, 2016

For the past few years Montreal based artist Echenberg has been exploring themes around home, often including her own family within the work. Family Portrait is a short looped video animation in which the family sits together on a couch, each one blowing up a weather balloon. As the objects expand, the individual is blocked, and somewhat erased, as they are pushed away from the others. Echenberg and her daughter also presented a live performance art piece that thematically connected to the exhibit.
