ARIEL BERGER, A family lunch, white earthernware clay, underglaze, glaze, wood, lazy susan, 2020


The cyclical nature of time reflects the endless rhythm of human life. The circle indefinitely repeats, depicting the ebb and flow of life and continuity within the family line. The family lunch is a gathering, repeated hundreds of times with varying configurations, as members of the family are born, grow and die. No one is immune to the ticking of the clock.
