    the beauty and diversity of the museum s display of Hanukkah lamps the artist created a site specific piece that at once referred to the rich historical tradition of this ceremonial object while reimagining it for the twenty first century McCaslin s signature vocabulary of industrial materials lightbulbs switches and metal electrical conduit is metaphorically relevant to the holiday The artist sees industrial electrical hardware as a sublime material that lurks behind our walls as ubiquitous as it is hidden connecting us physically culturally and spiritually Seeing the beauty of these industrial forms the artist literally brings this infrastructure out of hiding into the light a most appropriate expression for Hanukkah the Festival of Lights McCaslin s piece both sculpture and Hanukkah lamp plays with the combination of formal restriction and openness that he found so intriguing about this ritual object On the traditional side Being the Light follows some of the dictates for a Hanukkah lamp s configuration eight lights with a ninth acting as the shamash or servitor which kindles the other lights The electrical system devised by the artist also cleverly reflects the traditional lamp the shamash must be switched on before the other eight bulbs can be illuminated In a final allusion to tradition the switches for the eight lights are arranged in a single row echoing the form of the bench style Hanukkah lamp However McCaslin also playfully departs from tradition Notably the lights are not at a typical uniform height and turning on the switches in a row actually lights the bulbs nonsequentially rather than in the expected right to left order Finally at the same time that McCaslin is in dialogue with tradition he also seems to be nodding at that most contemporary version of the Hanukkah lamp the electric menorah that has become so popular in recent decades Source Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 164 165 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 pp 164 165 Bitterli Konrad and Matthias Wohlgemuth eds MATTHEW MCCASLIN WORKS SITES Ostfildern bei Stuttgart Cantz 1997 Braunstein Susan FIVE CENTURIES OF HANUKKAH LAMPS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM A CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 no 110 pp 214 215 Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 no 110 pp 214 215 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Hanukkah article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle speed true data cycle manual trump false data cycle swipe true data cycle prev cycle prev data cycle next cycle next Anika Smulovitz American b 1974 Hanukkah Lamp Light in the Darkness Hanukkah Menorah Learn More Jowanov Hanukkah Lamp Learn More Laura Cowan British b 1971 Dreidel Smart Dreidel Learn More

  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Alms Container Tzedakabako, 2000
    born Kay Sekimachi is an internationally recognized fiber artist Her work is noted for its innovative forms and delicate sculptural quality A Japanese American Sekimachi was sent along with her mother and two sisters to an internment camp in Topaz Utah under a 1942 order signed by President Franklin Roosevelt which authorized the incarceration of more than 120 000 Japanese Americans The camp allowed Sekimachi to paint and draw daily A fellow detainee and former university art instructor Chiura Obata began an art school there Art supplies arrived for the students and Sekimachi attended Obata s classes After the war San Francisco became a center for fiber art and it was there that Sekimachi developed her passion for the medium She enrolled at the California College of Arts and Crafts to study with Trude Guermonprez a major figure in weaving and textile arts who had immigrated to the United States from Germany in the late 1940s Guermonprez impressed upon Sekimachi the almost limitless potential of the fiber medium introduced her to intricate weaving techniques and encouraged her to create nonfunctional works such as tapestries wall hangings and room dividers In 1956 Sekimachi broadened her expertise through study at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle Maine with the celebrated textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen Sekimachi s fascination with the box form began in the 1970s with an exhibition of miniature textiles at the British Craft Centre in London For this exhibition she created a small loom woven box She discovered that the form was highly suitable for a quadruple weave a technique that integrates four layers of fiber to create the sides of a box Sekimachi found that the color scheme of black and natural was best for these box shapes as it allows the viewer to see the form and not be distracted by color In 2000 The Jewish Museum commissioned Sekimachi to weave an alms container which is used in homes and synagogues to collect money for Jewish organizations and charities She entitled it Tzedakabako a combination of the Hebrew word for righteousness tzedakah and the Japanese word for box bako Sekimachi wove the work on a tube and shaped and pressed the ends to create a box form with a folded top She stenciled the Hebrew letters for tzedakah on the exterior and used a multiple layer weave in black and natural to create a pattern for the folded top which is unfolded for the insertion of coins and bills Source Adapted from Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 p 162 Bibliography Berger Maurice et al MASTERWORKS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New York The Jewish Museum 2004 p 162 Provenance the artist until 2000 sold to TJM This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data cycle speed 1000 data cycle carousel offset 120 data cycle throttle
