CRETE - Memory loss



This project was made in spring 2016, during the ArtAmari residency, in Crete. Here, a holocaust and executions took place and forced labor was a reality for the locals during the Occupation in WW2. The short-term field research extended over a period of 3 weeks in 9 areas / villages in Amari Vally, and in addition in areas around Tympaki. The local historical events such as the “Battle of Crete”, emphasise once again the need for such research. Throughout the residency, voids of memory were highlighted.
