Abstract (English)

A publication to accompany two series of installations by Markiewicz: “Promise” (1999) and “Places to Remember” (2001). In her essay on the artist’s work, Pollock deals with the paradoxical nature of making art after Auschwitz. Her analysis of aesthetic practices concerned with the Holocaust, centres on concepts of memory and oblivion/forgetting, as well as psychoanalytic theories of trauma, otherness and witnessing. Neumark’s text focuses on issues of trauma, memory and healing within art making and Jewish culture. Numerous references are made to the Biblical story of the Israelites’ flight from Egypt. The catalogue also includes a brief text by the artist, which focuses on issues of place, memory and Jewish identity. List of illustrations. Biographical notes. 62 bibl. ref.
