Revised Histories

The Morris-Jumel Mansion is one of the nation’s foremost historic house museums and Manhattan’s oldest surviving residence. Revised Histories is a site-specific installation by Traci Talasco which re-creates architectural sections of the Mansion out of carved erasers. Connecting to the history of its former residents, the artist calls attention to the details that have been purposely left out, or that have changed over time through the re-telling and/or uncovering of new facts. The use of erasers as a material conceptually and poetically represents the removal of information, both through erasing and carving. This exhibition investigates the re-telling of history and the information that is lost or missing in the process. The implied action of erasing speaks of mistakes or inaccuracies and of history itself.
