RECOLLECTED: longing for a home. 2011-12 Mobile Storefront Exhibition, Long Beach, CA 620 South Street Long Beach, CA
RECOLLECTED: longing for a home, was a site-specific public art installation in Long Beach that was funded by the Arts Council of Long Beach. With this project, Ziperstien is primarily concerned the absurd culture of collecting domestic objects and the desire associated with redecorating. She installed hundreds of colorful vases from Long Beach thrift stores and create a window installation in a former commercial space. At the conclusion of the exhibition, all of the vases were returned and the project lives on in the homes of the community as each vase is resold featuring a commemorative hangtag, marking the vases participation in this temporary installation.
