Exhibition at Windermere shows Holocaust route
THERE is just a week left to view a fascinating South Lakes exhibiton that follows the footsteps of a group of child Holocaust Survivors.
The Paradise Route exhibition and project, at Windermere Library, is a visual and sonic arts journey through the heart of the Lake District, that charts the journey of the 300 child concentration camp survivors who arrived at Crosby on Eden airfield in 1945.
The Lake District Holocaust Project held a special event at its home space within the library to commemorate the exhibition, which has been put together by Another Space director Trevor Avery and composer Mark Peter Wright.
Guest speaker for the opening was Richard Demarco, who during a lifetime of dedication to European arts projects has received awards from the governments of UK, Poland, Germany and Italy.
Richard was co-founder of the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 1963 and during his career worked closely with artists such as Joseph Beuys, Tadeusz Kantor, Paul Neagu and Marina Abramovic.
A special limited edition The Paradise Route map has been produced by Trevor in association with award-winning arts organisation, Neasden Control Centre.
A CD of recorded sound work relating to a journey through the Lake District has been created by Mark Peter Wright, a former British Composer of the Year, who edited original field recordings by Chris Atkins.
The Paradise Route exhibition runs at Windermere Library until January 9.
Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 10am-4pm and Saturday, 10am-1pm For further details contact 015394-46759.
