Goldjuden

year: 2021
dimensions: 90/55/14 cm
technique: bronze casting using the lost wax method
description: Goldjuden is an attempt to materialize the experience of trauma, memory, a phenomenon that took place in the concentration camp in Treblinka during World War II. The object symbolically refers to the practice of obtaining gold from victims, European Jews, in the Treblinka death camp. The prisoners who were responsible for collecting and sorting gold, jewels, money, and other valuables that reached the undressing room were called "golden Jews." The scaled hook, hand-formed, cast in bronze using the lost wax technique, is an ambivalent form of reference to the phenomenon of violence, plunder, survival strategies, and death.
