2015-01-18T16:43:09+00:00

St Canice will host part of this year’s Head On Photo Festival with the exhibition by Erika Diettes titled Sudarios.

Sudarios is a wrenching series of portraits of witnesses to massacres committed during the Colombian armed conflict. Printed on silk, these portraits tells the stories of twenty grief-stricken victims who, as part of their torture, were forced to watch unspeakable violence perpetrated against their loved ones and were left alive as witnesses. Sudarios is a portrait of the irreparable harm which violence leaves in humanity.

The Show will officially be between 12 May and 8 June. The exhibition has been hung in many churches around the world.

The official launch here is on Sunday 18th May 2014, with the artist, Erika Diettes, speaking in St Canice’s church at 12.30pm.
