The Blue Skies Project (Fitzrovia Chapel, London)

Coinciding with the opening week of Photo London, I’m excited to be showing a mixed media installation of The Blue Skies Project at the wonderful location of Fitzrovia Chapel in London, curated by Monica Allende.

The installation combines two intertwined narratives: a visual piece of 1,078 peel apart instant film images of blue skies, photographed exactly above every single coordinate where the WWII 
nazi concentration camp system materialised, and a 13 year long real-time tracking audio piece by Ruben Samama of fading tones that retraces every known victim.

The resulting immersive experience at the historically relevant secular location of Fitzrovia Chapel 
 – a Grade II listed building – invites visitors to view, listen and reflect.

In The Blue Skies Project, Ruben Samama and I explore the mechanisms of collective memory and the visual representation of trauma.
