Morning Prayer 3
by Robbin Ami Silverberg
Unique series of 6 / Dobbin Books, NY: 2020
Sewn text on Dobbin Mill papers with embedded stones & other mixed media
This small series is a re-visit to an earlier project of the same name. The book focuses on the misogynistic portion of the Jewish morning prayer which males recite, giving thanks for not being born female. This misogynist phrase is sewn onto at the penultimate page with a ripped piece of cloth embedded into the paper (referencing the rent clothing, part of Jewish ritual mourning). The series is made of skin-like (flax) papers with embedded stones (referencing the stoning of the adulteress) and materials that scar and deface it.
