Meine Katharsis (And Other Poems)
is a body of work made in response to the poetry of Henry Shore by the grandson he never met. A Viennese Jew, Henry fled the holocaust in 1939 and settled in England. An unusually talented man, he became a published poet and wrote several books. This work seeks to explore Henry's attempts to understand the trauma he suffered through the use of photography to create interpreted visual metaphors, and explores the transfer of inter-generational traumatic memory. The hand-made prints created to express these metaphors are made using an obsolete technique known as Argyrotype, and are intentionally designed to decay, mimicking the corruption of memory as it erodes over time.
