Art Exhibition, Sat 9 Sep - Sat 4 Nov 2017, free entry




Miroslaw Balka, a contemporary artist from Poland, will install a tantalising exhibition in Windermere in September.

The exhibition, titled ‘yromem,’ has been commissioned by the Lake District Holocaust Project (LDHP) and will open to the public on 9 September.

Residents of the Lake District and visitors to the area will have a unique opportunity to see work by an artist who has previously exhibited in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall, Venice Biennale on a number of occasions, and recently held a retrospective alongside Anselm Kiefer at the astonishing Pirelli Hangar Bicocca exhibition space in Milan.

The exhibition in Windermere is the final stage of a remarkable two year programme called “Holocaust and Memory Reframed” which has been curated by LDHP with the support of Arts Council England. ‘yromem’ is the last of four exhibitions which look at work that explores aspects of Post Holocaust arts and culture and relate to “the representation of the unrepresentational”.

Through deceptively simple gestures Miroslaw Balka uses drawings and constructions that give powerful reflections on ritual, hidden memories and the history of Nazi occupation in Poland. Balka is a resident of Warsaw and his work deals with both personal and collective memories, especially in relation to his Catholic upbringing and the collective experience of Poland’s fractured history.
