Unpacking Job Lisa Huberman
About This Show
In “Unpacking Job,” a woman marks the anniversary of her grandmother’s death by re-staging iconic photos of her youth. As she goes through the vintage clothing and jewelry, she meditates on the performative nature of grieving, both in her family and in Jewish scripture, and the legacy of inherited trauma. She also notices how Alanis Morrisette’s “Jagged Little Pill” embodies Old Testament angst.
