Sculpting After the Holocaust
2 May 2019
New North London Synagogue, London
This year on Yom Hashoah we remember the Holocaust through the experience and sculpture of Naomi Blake, who through her abstract and semi figurative pieces, sought to promote understanding between faiths. We will hear Naomi’s story and get an insight into her work through the eyes of Naomi’s daughter Anita (Nin) Peleg. We will also be introduced – through a recently produced film – to the powerful sculpture of Maurice Blik. Naomi’s protective, nurturing and hopeful style, together with Maurice’s strong, defiant, outward-reaching forms, demonstrate contrasting but equally positive expressions of their experiences as survivors of the Holocaust.
