Distance Experimental Photography by Serhiy Horobets
Digital Opening of the special exhibition on Holocaust Remembrance Day
Even standing still meters close to a tombstone, one is in steady movement; slowly and constantly moving away. The distance is not constant. Established during a cholera outbreak in 1831 the new Jewish cemetery in Brody (Lviv region, Ukraine) was intentionally situated far there from the city; in 1941 – 1943 thousands of Holocaust victims were buried here in mass graves.
There is a distance between those who the tombstones represent too, a constant one perhaps. This work is an attempt to probe into the nature of our perception of all these distances.
The special exhibition was opened on the Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27th January 2021.
The event was streamed live and recorded. Video of the live stream.
