In this temporary exhibition Jordan Baseman, April Lin 林森 & Laura Fisher respond to the archive of Holocaust Centre North with work spanning video, textiles, sound, sculpture, and print. Respectively, their work dissects retellings of traumatic histories and places, speculatively explores the potential of survivors’ images and archive material, and elevates messages and gestures of hope and affection.
Memorial Gestures is a yearly artist-in-residence programme. Over the course of 6 months artists are invited to explore Holocaust Centre North’s archive and respond to themes they feel have contemporary relevance.
Join us in celebrating the work in this inaugural year of Memorial Gestures for our opening night with poetry readings, guided tours and a chance to meet the artists.
