In 2014 the 100kg iron “welcome” gate was stolen from Dachau concentration camp. A local blacksmith forged a replica. Exactly like the original. Almost. Over three days, Rachel Mars invites you to bear witness as she welds together another copy.
Presented by Horizon Showcase, this impactful durational performance installation with live welding and atmospheric sound-world by Dinah Mullen explores who memorials are for and who decides. You are invited to watch, sit, and be immersed in this durational installation.
Multiple time slots are available each day.
Presented in association with Horizon Showcase, funded by Arts Council England.
