Orit Raff

INSIDE DRAWING (1997-2004)

The installation INSIDE DRAWING (1997-2004) contains photographs that Orit Raff took at schools in New York. According to Raff the school years play a crucial role in forming our memory: for the first time the familiar atmosphere at home is exchanged for a social environment. She photographed apparently trivial things, such as carvings on desks and the marks left after erasing chalkboards. Over the years these increasingly numerous vestiges grew into small histories, which form palpable memories of the school years that are so important for human development. By photographing the scruffy spots in isolation, Raff gives them an unexpected beauty.
