Amazing Photographic War Exhibition opens at Hinkler Hall of Aviation
Recovering the Past Photographic Exhibition
Don't miss this FREE Exhibition!! Includes supporting education resource for schools!
Recovering the Past is a photographic exhibition currently at Hinkler Hall of Aviation in Bundaberg.
We visited the exhibition when at the Botanic Gardens with the kids recently. The thought-provoking exhibition created lots of interest from the kids about the consequences of war and how it effects people and communities so long after the events.
Recovering the Past is a unique photographic exhibition by London based artist Ian Alderman. This exhibition brings together two separate groups of men with origins a century apart, united through conflict.
The first group is the men of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) who fought in Flanders in some of the worst battles of The Great War. The second group is the Belgian men who continue the ongoing bomb disposal efforts on the same former battlefields today.
Inspired by Australian artistic and cultural icons, photographer Frank Hurley and artist Will Longstaff, this ground-breaking exhibition is a philosophical exploration of consequences of human conflict; of legacies that persist long after the guns fall silent.
This powerful photographic exhibition documents the consequences of the Great War on Australian society in the post-conflict era. In a series of poignant accompanying quotes sourced from Australia’s archives, the tragedy of its shell-shocked and traumatised returning soldiers, its war widows and grieving mothers of lost sons are laid bare...
This is a free exhibition and is a fantastic educational experience especially for school-aged children. There is a great education pack available for schools who can participate in tours of this amazing exhibition.
