The work Reminder by David Bernstein is a reminder of a reminder. It reminds him of a ritual Jewish object called a mezuzah, which is placed on a doorpost of a home to focus one's attention on the moment of threshold and transition; going from inside to outside or vice versa. It therefore brings sacredness to a daily routine, but he wants to also think about the object from a contemporary perspective beyond one religion or belief, transcending to a human poetic potential. To remind is to return your mind, to be mindful of everyday significance.

David Bernstein (b. 1988 San Antonio, Texas) is an artist based in Brussels and Amsterdam. He combines performance, sculpture, and writing to tell stories through objects. He plays with absurdity and humor, using hospitality to invite others into his curious world.
