investigating the Inbetween

(In)Memoriam

(In)Memoriam has been shown twice at The Womens Library (November 2018, May 2010 ) as well as at Sheroes (March 2018).

(In)Memoriam reflects on the historical and contemporary experience of violence against women. The tourism arising from the Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 is the starting point for a series of works that investigate the glamorisation and invisibility of violence against women.

 (In) Memoriam, in its final iteration, the alternative commemorative walking tour, brings the histories of all women suffering violence into view by retrieving the identities of Annie Chapman, Catherine Eddowes, Elizabeth Stride, Mary Anne Nichols and Mary Jeanette Kelly into a space dedicated to the preservation of women’s history.

 The project is finalized with the site installation of a plaque for each woman, named with her life dates. 

The multilayered piece was created by Ignite Collective, formed by Ana Escobar, Natalie Koffman, Barbara Proschak, Ilenia Voleri.
