Save Event: Peter Watkins - "The Unforgetting"

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


On the 15th of February 1993, Peter’s mother walked from Zandvoort beach into the North Sea to her death.


"The Unforgetting" is a series of works that explores the texture of personal memory, and is told through photography and sculpture and is presented in installation form. It is a series of works made up of remnants, exploring the loss of Peter’s mother, and their shared German ancestry. Often borrowing from the language of museum presentation, these works explore the complexities of memory in the (re)presentation of personal narratives. How much of a person remains in the objects that are left behind,and what can these objects tell us of the trauma of loss, and of how memory so easily turns to narrative.
