Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz’s
colorful tableaux depict an episode in the life of a fictional Jewish family living in 1930’s Poland. Focusing on the theme of loss, Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz’s dreamlike and poetic vignettes describe scenes of sacrifice, grief and family tension, but are also punctuated with moments of love, longing and tenderness.
To achieve his cinematic style, Tuschman seamlessly combines live models with meticulously detailed doll-house size dioramas giving him full control to direct each scene — a process the artist pioneered in his previous series Hopper Meditations.
“The project is my attempt to visually weave together narrative fiction with strands of both cultural and family history … It is my hope that in this way, the pictures in Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz reflect the fleeting, fluid nature of both memory, and of dreams.”—Richard Tuschman
