Fourteen Stations / Hey Yud Dalet"

 

 

Artist Arie A. Galles and poet Jerome Rothenberg presented a Lecture Presentation/Poetry Reading about their artistic collaboration at The Drawing Center, NYC on October 14, 2009.  This unique Artist/Poet undertaking consists of Galles’ large format charcoal drawings, and hand lettered Poem/Drawings of Rothenberg’s Gematria poems written for this suite.  Galles’ drawings, based on World War II aerial reconnaissance photographs, map the sites of fourteen Nazi concentration camps.  Rothenberg’s poems are based on the numerical values of each of those camp’s names.  The creation of these works was based on a conviction that, despite its gross insufficiency to express the horrors that took place, art bears a responsibility to confront the Holocaust.  The project’s English title refers to the "Fourteen Stations of the Cross," and to the fact that each concentration camp was established near a railroad station.  The Hebrew title "Hey Yud Dalet," acronym of the Hebrew phrase, "Hashem Yinkom Damam," “May God avenge their blood,” has been carved into the gravestones of Jewish martyrs throughout the centuries.  The presentation commenced with Rothenberg’s reading of the poems against a background of each of the drawings, followed by Galles’ lecture/slide presentation on the genesis of the suite, and its technical, aesthetic and iconographic development.  Galles and Rothenberg discussed their interaction and collaboration in creating this entity that is larger than the sum of its parts.  The presentation concluded with a Q&A session with the audience.  To hear the complete presentation, please click: http://www.drawingcenter.org/STE-005.mp3

Television Interview

 

Arie Galles appeared with Atom Egoyan on a segment of CTV's "Canada AM" show, a nationally broadcast show.

"It's a non-propagandistic kind of show," says artist and educator Galles, who was born in 1944 in Uzbekistan and raised in Poland."

"These works have incredible strength," says Galles, who appeared with Egoyan on Canada AM. "Any genocide does not happen in a Martian landscape. It happens on this earth. The horror is that humanity can perpetrate it on this incredibly beautiful blue marble we are flying on."
