What emerges from these thoughtful conversations are fascinating and unexpected orientations to place, ranging from deep connections to a specific childhood home, to more conscious adoptions of place, to somewhat fluid approaches in which the very concept of “home” seems to dissolve.
Moving from physical landscapes to the geography of memories and recorded histories, from territories of emotion to social environments that condition and contribute to the idea of home, Rubin-Kunda touches on indigenous approaches to ancestral homelands, the land as physical place and emotional territory, the historic role of women in creating and taking care of “home,” ideas of home disconnected from place, and liberating concepts of “homelessness.” Woven through these encounters with other artists are Rubin-Kunda’s reflections on her own artistic path.
Candid, empathetic, and insightful, At Home explores the creative process and the ways that artists find and create meaning within a fragmented contemporary landscape.

She has exhibited and performed in the United States, Canada, Israel and Europe.
