It all came to this; we packed our treasures and possessions. Berlin 1936
The story behind it is that in 1936 a Jewish family fled from Berlin to England because of the Nazi persecutions. They packed their treasures and possessions. The dress is disintegrating and whenever I touch the fabric a little more falls apart.
I made the original art work for an exhibition and I had wanted to give it to my friend but was fearful she may not have liked what I’d done with the dress. I was so pleased when she asked if she could purchase it; I gifted it to her.
