Northern Contemporary will exhibit Not Just A Name, opening Thursday, October 12th, 2017 at 5pm and running untill Tuesday, October 17th, 2017.

Not Just A Name explores Dorien Verlinden’s journey to discover the history of her great-grandfather, a Jewish journalist of Polish origin who fought for his beliefs and morals during WWII.

Using analogue photography and charcoal Dorien captures the history of her great-grandfather and the emotions felt by future generations affected by the Holocaust. Not Just A Name is a personal examination of a single person caught in a moment of history that will never be forgotten.

More than a name on a wall, Heinrich Chaskel Rechtschaffen is a direct descendent to generations that survive to tell his tale.

The exhibition will be unveiled on Thursday Oct 12th with the artist in attendance. For more information, contact Hitoshi at Hitoshi@northerncontemporarygallery.com
