Kathy Temin's Monumental Memorial Project in Auckland

From Standing Room Only, 2:38 pm on 20 September 2015

In Australia Kathy Temin is best known for creating abstracted forests and for recording and sharing oral histories She's chosen Auckland to mount her most ambitious project yet, which combines the two practices. The Memorial Project incorporates survivor testimonies captured at war memorial events and is also her personal homage and goes some way to reclaim her father's internment in Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany. Kathy Temin is an Associate Professor at MDA, Monash University Melbourne and this exhibition was completed while she was this year's Elam Artist in Residence. The Memorial Project opens on the 2nd of October at Auckland's Gus Fisher Gallery.
