Abstract or description

In “Contemporary witness: Surrogations and Passages”, Branthwaite uses audio and lens-based media to explore the way we form surrogate experiences and passages to the past. Although these experiences are shared, they are also unique and personal. Responding the opportunities of the Covid pandemic allowed a critical enquiry to be formed that investigated the real and conceptual distances between his studio in Britain and the Falstad memorial site in Norway

Outside of living memory, we all must construct our own interpretations of historical events. The work aims to facilitate and open up debate on these surrogate histories, creating links between the material culture of the past and contemporary conditions.
