Tonight the World

Daria Martin, Still from Tonight the World (2018)

Artist Daria Martin revisits dreams and memories from her personal family history to create a complex portrait of migration, loss and resilience.

Drawing upon dream diaries kept by her grandmother over a 35 year period, London-based artist Daria Martin creates a new installation for The Curve. Through atmospheric film and gaming technology Martin stages a series of intimate encounters, enveloping viewers in an exploration of the curious and traumatic history of her grandmother, who fled the Holocaust.

This exhibition has been commissioned by Barbican, London and co-commissioned by The Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco.

Projections by Christie Digital.

Additional support is provided by the South Moravian Film Endowment Fund, Czech Republic, St John’s College, Oxford, University of Oxford, and using public funding by Arts Council England.
