H.N.5 515

by Sława Harasymowicz

Centrala presents an exciting collaboration with Sława Harasymowicz, who is a Polish-born, London based artist. Her practice negotiates the positions between the personal and the public in exploring questions around history, memory and identity.  In H.N.5 515 Sława Harasymowicz uses personal biography (and documentary records) to explore one of the biggest World War II maritime disasters that still remains obscured in history and clouded in ambiguity. On 3 May 1945 in Neustadt Bay near Lübeck, three stationary German ships, Cap Arcona, Thielbek and SS Deutschland were torpedoed by RAF Hawker Typhoons. As a way of unpacking or exposing the personal and public significance of this event and interrogating the impulses of knowledge, destiny, timing and control, Harasymowicz juxtaposes drawing, print, found footage, archives and sound. Additionally she creates a haunting multi-vocal audio and object installation, where voice, soundtracks and story compete for attention in our attempts to make sense of the richness and density of material.
