Zei Gezunt // Porte-toi bien // Keep Well

Focusing on the journey of a refugee during World War II and the role of everyday objects throughout this journey, Zei Gezunt looks at the life of Lejb Pilanski and his experiences during this time period. The exhibition features the improvised household objects Pilanski had throughout his journey, and explores the deeper significance of these items in their historical context. Other constructed items, personal materials, audio and video and photographs are included in the exhibit, adding to the exploration of displacement within everyday, seemingly insignificant items. This exhibit is in connection with the Museum of Jewish Montreal’s series, Movements and Migrations, which considers all forms of mobility, from physical to emotional, and the presence of displacement, loss and belonging within these themes.

When: Now until Jan. 20
Where: Museum of Jewish Montreal, 4040 St-Laurent Blvd.
Admission is free.
