Tales within historical spaces: Beata Batorowicz

1 September – 28 October

Drawing upon a rich European iconography of mythology, folklore and fairytales, Polish born Beata Batorowicz explores the weighted history of Polish/German experiences of WWII in her new body of work, Tales within historical spaces.

In particular, the project is inspired by the little known history of a collection of children's stories, Fairy tales from Auschwitz (Bajki z Auschwitz) that were secretly written and illustrated by Polish prisoners in concentration camps for their children.

These influences are interwoven with the artist's personal narratives as a way of engaging with cultural memory.
