Diana Forster: Such a Long Journey

In 1940, at the beginning of the Second World War, Stalin’s troops invaded eastern Poland. A million Polish people were forced from their homes at gunpoint and sent to labour camps in Siberia. Diana Forster’s mother and grandparents were among them.

Diana avoids showing traumatic, disturbing images in her installations and prints as they can turn viewers away. If we accept a role for art in presenting subsequent generations with the realities of war, we have to find new ways of engaging audiences and Diana does this through formal qualities which draw the viewers’ attention while the work is gradually understood.

The North Wall Gallery is open from Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, and from 12pm – 4pm on Saturdays. Sundays & Bank Holidays: normally closed, except for theatre events.
