Lot18: Annie Zamero

Artwork Title: Burning
Annie Zamero
Statement:  The Holocaust series is about conflict between Other which in turn creates conflict within Self and the family unit. Images of intimate family photos are imbued with tokens of horror and these give an air of quiet contemplative incomprehensibilty. Since the concentration camps produced so many dead bodies, many were burnt, and hence Zamero has burnt photos, muslin etc in the oven or grill, and used chemical affects suggesting burning. The work is about the experience of total disempowerment via persecution and extermination. However Carl Jung says it is the resolution of self conflict via reconciliation of opposites which can lead to self knowledge and greater personal power.
