A LETTER CONDEMNING THIS EXHIBITION
2018 | Handwritten letters, locking frame, leather, velvet, epistolary action
Nemerofsky wrote two letters when he learned that his aesthetics and identity had been used by artist Josh Schwebel as part of his solo exhibitions at the Fonderie Darling (Montreal) and the Tadeusz Kantor House (Hucisko). The letters — one condoning, the other condemning Schwebel's actions — were framed and locked within a sculptural work designed to resemble a quodlibet painting, and displayed within Schwebel’s Montreal exhibition. Close to the end of the exhibition's run, Nemerofsky staged the unlocking and live reading of the two letters, returning one letter to the frame, disposing of the other.
