Sound installation, 16 min.
Commissioned by The British Art Show 9, with support of the Stanley
Thomas Johnson Stiftung and King’s College London.
Deathscape immerses the audience in soundscapes transmitted by forensic archaeologists during the exhumation of mass graves in Spain that hold the bodies of those executed by the authoritarian Franco-regime.
More than one hundred thousand men and women ‘disappeared’ during the Franco regime from the time of the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War until his death in 1975, and around 2,000 mass burial sites are spread across Spanish landscapes today.
