CAMBRIDGE, MA.- The Rubin-Frankel Gallery at Boston University Hillel House is featuring the work of photographer Emily Corbat in the solo exhibition entitled "Absolution of the Wind". In keeping with the mission of Rubin-Frankel Gallery, Corbat will exhibit work inspired by her spirituality, filtered through her love of nature and reflecting upon Jewish tradition. "I loaf within the absolution of the wind" a line from a poem by Philip Booth*, unifies the concept of this exhibit. It exalts in total surrender of oneself to nature's surroundings, yet absolution bears the weight of faith as recited in deepest prayer during Kol Nidre, the chant sung at the beginning of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and most solemn of Jewish Holidays, "all vows may they be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, and void". This show was intentionally scheduled to coincide with the High Holidays.
