Joshua Hayes Davidson - ‘Burning, Burning, Burning’


Image of Joshua Hayes Davidson -  ‘Burning, Burning, Burning’

Starting with the destruction of irreplaceable relics in the museum of Mosul, this work examines the digital replication of these monuments, a digital mediation of memory. This is combined with the desperate human cost of the conflict, appropriation of words from T.S.Eliot’s The Waste Land (1922) brings forth the themes of cultural desolation, oppression of women and mechanical slaughter on an unprecedented scale. This work aims to tease open the discussion on human pain
and suffering.
