Artist’s Reaction: Chava Rosenzweig

Sat 26 January 2013 – Sun 4 January 2015

Main Exhibition Space

IWM North presents an installation by Manchester ceramic artist Chava Rosenzweig – part of the museum’s Reactions series where artists are invited to display work showing how war shapes lives.

The intimate and powerful installation, commissioned by IWM North, of hundreds of porcelain stars fired in a gas kiln, explores the impact of the Holocaust on second and third generation survivors, its impact on identity and the exploration of living with legacies. It explores how the Holocaust has shaped people’s lives, and the complex relationships between the processes of forgetting and remembering, destruction and creation.
