It was at the ruined Treblinka village station site that the first thoughts of a two year exhibition project came in. Above and Below the Holocaust Landscape could attempt to deal with the seen and the unseen, could begin to grapple with the visible and the invisible reminders, and remainders, linked to an archaeological process.
The artists involved were selected for the programme because their work so clearly deals with these issues. Four artists were chosen, namely Richard Kolker, Richard White & Lorna Brunstein and Miroslaw Balka.
Richard Kolker’s photographs ‘The Auschwitz Landscape were exhibited in 2019. Richard White & Lorna Brunstein were due to exhibit together during the summer of 2020 and Miroslaw Balka’s installation was to be the culmination of the project. As a result of Covid 19, both these exhibitions have been put on hold.
Details of the artists can be found on their pages under ‘Artists +’.
