Reconciliation

Scultura, Pace, Memoria, Odio, Libertà, Marmo, 110x25x20cm
Against a backdrop of widespread inhumanity and indifference, news headlines dominated by conflicts, callous politicians and a global refugee crisis, the need for an antidote based on a message of peace, hope and liberty is more relevant than ever. Reconciliation was inspired by Emma's first visit to Jerusalem and the Holocaust museum Yad Vashem. While from a British family herself, Emma has personal links to Jerusalem with two great grandparents buried in a Christian site on Mount Zion, and an uncle who is a former British Ambassador to Israel. At the core of the proposed exhibition is the sculpture itself, yet Reconciliation should be seen as more than just an inanimate object. The accompanying video describes the journey and includes footage of Emma’s encounter with Eliezer Goldwyn, a Holocaust survivor who lent his number to the project, and who's message of hope and survival forms an integral part of the installation. In January 2017 Reconciliation project became part of the public collection in the Visual Library at Yad Vashem, Jerusalem.

Nowadays each of us first needs to reconcile with him/herself. Only then would peace and reconciliation with others and the world be possible. Thank you, Emma, for reminding it to us!
I wish you the best of luck with your meaningful and beautiful project!

I'm shaken by the depth and reach of the concept. "Do not forget" is essential for this ever accelerating world where everything seems to be about a now that is already outdated and forgotten the moment it arrives. I wish you luck with this meaningful work.
