Dwora Fried

Boxes

“Fried’s assemblages are encased in glass covered rectangular boxes populated with an assortment of petite objet trouvé—vintage toys and dolls, discards from her family home, fabrics, photographs and items of the sort. These paraphernalia materialize into narratives that speak of memories, fantasies, truths and the psyche. The box can be a metaphor for the womb, the home, containment, claustrophobia, entrapment and marginalization and Fried utilizes many of these tropes. She employs this scale and format as it invites the viewer into an intimate experience.”
