HOMInG interview with Peter Kivisto (Augustana College)

Conducted by Paolo Boccagni, November 2019

“It’s obviously [Marc Chagall’s Remembrance] about transplantation. You try to bring the home with you, but it’s also the weight of it, right? If that guy was not trying to do that, he would be standing upright, not all hunched-over. It’s a dualistic thing: on the one hand this guy has a desire to take his home with him, but he is paying a price, and anyone looking at him can see that the home is a burden. He could be travelling lighter, if he didn’t have it, but presumably he is compelled for whatever reason to accept the burden”.
