Be swept away at the Cenotaph by echos of women who loved Canada’s WWII veterans.
Five life-size statues overlook a dock platform, each woman wielding a story about her experiences as a soldier’s wife during the Second World War. Honing in on the exchanges and emotional pleas between the women and the men overseas in their lives, the installation draws explorers back to the era that would impact them forever by reimagining downtown Kitchener’s war memorial cenotaph.
Local painter and New Art Radio KW host Jennifer Gough pushes her own creative boundaries with another intense sculptural experiment in an unlikely downtown space – she contributed “Clash” to NIGHT\SHIFT 2013. This year her aim is to forge a new connection with WWII veterans as Remembrance Day approaches.
