Opening Reception 7th - April 20th
Vita Litvak, a 2002 Haverford alumna, grew up in Tiraspol, capital of the self-declared post-Soviet nation of Transnistria. Her photographic and video works are informed by her experiences of migration and investigate its effects on perception, identity and subjectivity. Her family immigrated to the United States and settled in Philadelphia shortly after the violent civil war that raged through the region in the summer of 1992.
Returning to Transnistria for a short stay in the fall of 2011, Litvak found her homeland an arresting reminder of lost potential, failed Communist ideologies, and false promises. Her color photographic portrait of Transnistria depicts both a physical place and a personal space full of memories.
Opening reception held on February 7th from 4:30pm-6:30pm. Light refreshments will be served in the Atrium Gallery (Marshall Fine Arts Building).
