Their Breasts, My Breasts

Start date: June 21, 2019
End date: June 30, 2019
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Ogniwo

An installation of sculptural works by Stephania Freda Leigh, Their Breasts, My Breasts explores the sexual trauma inflicted upon women during the Holocaust. Leigh’s work—usually brightly colored, participatory, and bouncing—here takes form in a silent, lamenting, and weeping disposition. The exhibition problematizes the lack of recorded and shared knowledge of testimonies of sexual violence from the Holocaust and wartime in general, and continues Leigh’s investigation into what it means to be a Jewish Australian Polish Female Artist, and how her Jewish female body mourns the experiences of her ancestors.

Opening: 16:00 – 18:30 on 23.06, Paulińska 28
