Research output: Non-Textual OutputExhibition

Abstract

An Embarrassment of Stains, Camp Joffre (2013), examined the remnants of internment Camp Joffre in South West France, in which 5,714 Jewish internees, 110 of which were children, were held for onward transport – principally to Auschwitz. The project documented the disintegration of the camp since 2005, combining found objects and photographic documentation. This series explored notions of sacred space, veneration, and remembrance, and queried the circumstances that could see a site such as Auschwitz Birkenau redeveloped. Darbyshire’s corresponding photo essay was accompanied by the symposium "Un Dialogue Ouvert", Paysage Conteste, October-December 2013.
