Krzysztof Wodiczko

Hiroshima, a site-specific show was performed on the 54th anniversary of the nuclear bomb, dropped on the city. It consisted of audio recordings of fifteen people – victims of the explosion, their children and grandchildren – who were telling their memories of those tragic events. Their stories were accompanied by an image of gesticulating hands displayed on the wall strengthening a river bank; the image was doubled by the reflection in the water. A background for the show was the A-Bomb Dome, the only building which remained untouched near the epicenter of the explosion. In his work, Wodiczko gave the floor to individuals, let them speak about their memories and did justice to the drama, which history books have not been and will not be able to contain.
