Sites of Collective Memory comprises four new moving image works that offer intimate portraits of individuals, witnesses to historic events at places that resonate with individual and shared remembrance. Each work takes testimony as its starting point, reflecting on personal experiences of iconic and historic moments – the bombing of Hiroshima, the massacre of Polish Gypsies in WWII, and the 7/7 London bombings – and in contrast, the private experiences passed down through British Romani families. Through these works we may consider how representations of history and culture are shared in our collective consciousness.
