Showing as part of "The Clearing" The genesis for this project was Gersht's interest in exploring landscapes embedded with both personal and historic resonance. The forest in question surrounds Kolomyia, in the Ukraine, and is a remaining fragment of the once vast primeval forest that covered much of continental Europe. Much mythologised and idealised in the period of the Enlightenment, epitomised in the German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich's paintings, the area was to bear witness to appalling atrocities during World War II.
