All Flesh is Grass: A Post-Memorial

Sunday, November 7, 1 – 5 p.m. ADT.

Presented at the Canadian Museum of Immigration  – Pier 21, 1055 Marginal Rd., Halifax, NS.

As part of the SSHRC-funded research project in memory activism, NSCAD’s Solomon Nagler and Angela Henderson continue their collaboration with Polish artists Alexandra Janus and Aleksander Schwarz to present a site-specific intervention that maps the unmarked graves of Jewish victims of the Holocaust into an architectural space within sight of Elpaqkwitk (Georges Island).

Using installation, photo-based works, print-making and sculpture as forms of experimental mapping, these works are a continuation of their artistic research within the forested landscapes of Eastern Poland.

At Pier 21, this work intervenes in a national museum that memorializes settler immigration on Turtle Island, contextualizing the Shoah within a space of difficult history.
