Mirrors is the debut of Marc Dennis and Liron Unriech’s collaborative project.  Mirrors, a six channel video installation based on interviews of six Holocaust survivors conducted by Dennis and filmed by Unreich. For this project the artists assembled a varied list of six living survivors to portray and traveled to their homes to interview the subjects in an effort to commemorate the survivors and create an intimate paring of collective memory and emotion through storytelling. Utilizing installation and film and emanating from the history of portraiture, Mirrors is an unprecedented unique artistic approach to the conventions of Holocaust discourse by presenting individual vignettes that together create a layered portrait of a generation of survivors. The interviews include reoccuring motifs of strength, optimism, and chance and investigate themes such as transformation, faith, and memory within the realm of an extraordinary event.
