Remembrance invites visitors to reflect on the power of loss and the healing potential of grief. Located in the Jurrien Timmer Gallery — a space dedicated to contemplation and meditation — the exhibition features drawings and sculpture by Canadian artist Zachari Logan that are as much about life as they are about death. His representations of flowers, leaves branches, and bodies in various states of transformation reveal the latent beauty in breakdown, as well as the hope that can emerge in its aftermath. The works acknowledge the inevitable passage of time while quietly revealing the emergence of new life and new growth.
Zachari Logan: Remembrance is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum. The exhibition is made possible by the generosity of Carolyn and Peter S. Lynch and The Lynch Foundation. Additional support was provided by individuals who support the Exhibition Incubation Fund: Jennifer and Andrew Borggaard, James B. and Mary Lou Hawkes, Kate and Ford O'Neil, and Henry and Callie Brauer. We also recognize the generosity of the East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum.
