ELCAF is pleased to present Steven Guarnaccia’s exhibition, Fatherland. Guarnaccia’s childhood, family history and fraught relationship with his father are the themes of this exhibition. The show features a series of transformed objects, which Guarnaccia dedicates to the memory of his father: painted shoes, vests, pipes, duckpins and rusty saws, along with wooden shirts and paper neckties made by the artist. Guarnaccia emblazons these objects with patterns, puns and emblematic phrases from his childhood. The objects suggest a narrative, an interplay of images and words that explore notions of memory, father-son relationships and coming of age.
This exhibition was curated by Hamelin Cultural Association in April and re-curated by ELCAF for SPACE gallery. It is presented in collaboration with Transbook Children’s Literature on the Move and Hamelin Cultural Association.
