LDF 2010: I Cling to Virtue by Onkar Kular and Noam Toran
by Jaime / September 20, 2010
One of the most intriguing of the V&A's exhibitions is tucked away on the museum's lower level, making its discovery all the more rewarding.

I Cling to Virtue is a stunning look into the memories and history of an eccentric East London family, the Lövy Singh's. Artists Onkar Kular and Noam Toran blend their stories with those of one of the family members, Monarch Lövy Singh; blurring the lines between fact and fiction.

Presented are a series of objects made from 3D modeling, whose forms are, "white as ghosts." These artifacts, which interweave the family's tales, range from seemingly a benign bar mitzvah cake to a Revox A700, recalled from the trial and conviction of an uncle on conspiracy and treason charges.

The exhibition forces the viewer to examine how history can be told, but perhaps never fully understood, solely through a selection of objects.
