Wednesday 19 February from 1:15pm to 2:15pm

In this free Lunchtime Lecture, Australian artist Dan Elborne will talk about the meaning and process behind his artwork, Deathgate, which is the largest Holocaust memorial ever produced in Australia.

The artwork comprises 1.3 million handmade ceramic stones: 1 for each detainee of the Auschwitz network of concentration camps. Every piece was produced by the artist over 1,242 days; the same length of time mass killing was carried out in those camps.

Deathgate is exhibited in direct reference to the railway line that leads through the main entrance to Auschwitz II Birkenau extermination camp and is largely a personal response to the artist visiting Auschwitz in early 2016.
