Presented at Ein Sof Gallery, בטחון — Tranquila, Mami looks at mental health and its full breadth from a Jewish lens. The large scale installation combines film and fashion with real-time programmed light and sound, exploring perfection and its impossibility, illustrating the spiritual panic that this tension can unleash in the Jewish body (especially in the context of intergenerational trauma and survivors’ guilt), and embodying the completeness of a shattered heart. Fragmented button-down shirts (made using a signature technique where custom sequins are laser-cut, UV printed and hand-stitched) hang amongst their fully shattered siblings to create an environment of suspended brokenness. Zisman frequently references the white button-down shirt in her work, reflecting her fascination with Jewish mens’ uniform garments, their meticulousness with details and specifics, and how the simplest change can completely alter a garment’s meaning and purpose. // Film and images launched via London Fashion Week, June 2022.
