Life After Hell 

Eye Contact relives Jews' immigrant experiences.

1391844.t.jpg
Through sculpture, film, and sound, Pam Heller crafts a haunting multimedia portrait of the Jewish immigrant experience in Eye Contact: Century to Century, which opens today at Cleveland State's Gallery C. "It began from the stories my grandmother told me," says Heller, a video artist and sculptor. "The imagery is still so vivid." After four years of research and hours of recorded conversations, Eye Contact became a vast collection of international, intergenerational encounters. Heller's works range from the recollections of a 94-year-old Holocaust survivor to dozens of quotes from descendants of Jewish immigrants across the globe. But "I'm not a historian," she says. "I'm just an artist."
Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-4 p.m. Starts: May 8. Continues through June 3
