Using the language of monuments and memorials, each column’s shape references a Shabbat candlestick confiscated from the Jewish families of Offenbach. The use of recycled cardboard and paper acts as a signifier of transience and a vessel for memory. The candlesticks are normally found in pairs. By showing them as oversized and individual forms, an emphasis is placed on the life and history of the object removed from its intended ritual use.
