High Wood, Untouched 1916/2018
The Bandstand, Nottingham Castle, Lenton Road
Friday 23 February from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm
High Wood near Bazentin le Petit in France remains an untouched location where many soldiers were laid to rest during the Battle of the Somme.
It is believed that at least 8,000 German and British soldiers died as results of the battles fought in this woodland.To this day many of the remains of the German and British servicemen still lie there. Due to this, one can only walk around the wood.
By projecting images of High Wood onto the bandstand at Nottingham Castle the images merge to create a canopy, an uncanny atmosphere – familiar yet slightly strange.
Visitors can only walk around the bandstand during the projection which echoes the limitation of access of the ‘real place’.
High Wood, Untouched 1916/2018, follows on from a research project by photographer Katja Hock, lecturer in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). To read more about her research entitled Stille-Fragmente, please visit her website.
