Installation film produced following the first Honouring Esther walk in Somerset, and developed with media gathered on the walks in Germany. Exhibited at 44AD Art Space 2015 and 2017. Running time 1.58

Exile was the theme for one of the curated interventions.

Media used includes social media captured and shared by walkers.

Honouring Esther:

Two walks each lasting two days in Somerset, England and Lower Saxony, Germany. The line of a Nazi Death March transposed, returned and retraced, working with the testimony of human rights activist and Holocaust survivor, Esther Brunstein. The walks took place as Germany publicly welcomed refugees crossing the fields of Eastern Europe. Devised, curated and hosted with artist, Lorna Brunstein, Esther’s daughter. Both cycles of walks ended with an exhibition/installation.
