Elinor Carucci – Sheltering in Place: A Photographer’s Diary of Life in Isolation
Elinor Carucci’s work has always focused on the everyday — the raw, joyful, exposed, and exposing business of humans who love each other sharing a space. And Carucci’s own domesticity has never been so intense nor so constrained. Carucci is sheltering in place in her 950-square-foot Manhattan apartment with her husband, Eran, and their teenage twins, Eden and Emmanuelle. With work, exercise, mealtime, and virtual socializing, the family tries to maintain some semblance of normalcy, but results are mixed. “I feel like I’m getting a little used to it,” says Carucci, who is Israeli. “But at the beginning, I had a lot of flashbacks to the Gulf War.”
The UCM Gallery of Art & Design is proud to present 22 of Carucci’s quarantine photographs in our Main Gallery. In addition to the exhibition, the gallery will present a virtual lecture and Q & A about the project with Elinor Carucci at 4 p.m. CST, on October 8, 2020. Details can be found under the EVENTS tab at the top of this webpage.
