Charles Stankievech: Monument as Ruin

Featuring new works by Charles Stankievech, this exhibition probes twentieth-century military forms and the ways in which they shaped spaces of conflict. Including video, photography and sculpture, the exhibition emerges from a study of two defense infrastructures from Britain and Europe’s coast: colossal acoustic mirrors built to listen for enemy planes before WWII and bunkers built by the Nazis lining the French, Belgian and Dutch coasts during WWII. Playing with scale and blurring the line between documentation and invention, Stankievech makes an immersive sonic space that invokes past military strategies, and questions their meaning in relation to today’s landscape of non-territorially bounded conflict.
