SHADOWS OF SHOAH
13 February 2016 - 8 May 2016 | Golden Homes Gallery
Shadows of Shoah is a multidisciplinary exhibition created to communicate the significance and gravity of the Holocaust in a unique and artistic way. The Shadows of Shoah exhibition is largely the work of New Zealand photographer and composer Perry Trotter, with research and interviews by Sheree Trotter. The exhibited work is based on interviews of Holocaust survivors from around the world and presents selected poignant incidents from these survivors’ experiences.
The Holocaust is quickly passing from society's consciousness and many now have no knowledge at all of this most pivotal of events. For many, the Holocaust has become merely a faceless statistic or historical anomaly. In such a culture, Shadows of Shoah seeks to introduce the Holocaust via brief, artistic, emotionally powerful presentations that convey the incomprehensible human tragedy in a deeply personal way, and to connect with media savvy young people in particular. The exhibition utilizes multiple HD projectors, HD monitors, motion sensors, custom control software, control PCs, LED lighting and audio equipment, all housed in a 7.76m diameter circular enclosure. The Shadows of Shoah Exhibition has been described as unique, groundbreaking, cutting edge and beautifully produced.
