TO PROJECTS
Buried Days, Starved Dreams: Auschwitz Memory

Oakland Museum
Oakland, California 1994

Created with composer Marilyn Hudson.

Exhibited in conjunction with the Fifteenth International Sculpture Conference in San Francisco.

A response to my 1992 visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland. Groups of friends gathered to copy first-person accounts by Auschwitz-Birkenau victims into journals that were buried under trees, unearthed, read, and re-buried by museum visitors.

During the course of the exhibition I learned I have two cousins from my Jewish Hungarian roots who are Auschwitz survivors, now living in the U.S. and in Switzerland. I have since met one of them.

Wood, journals, piano harp, human hair, chimes, stones, burnt branches, burnt canvas.

Dimensions: 10'H x 20'W x 36'L
