As of November 21st this past week, I’ve finished my Deathgate project. 1.3 million handmade pieces over 1,242 days. To know the reason for the project, please follow this link: www.danelborne.com/deathgate.
In afew days I’ll be flying over to Europe to re-visit the Auschwitz camps (that catalysed the work) and the art center in France where I started the project afew years ago. Mostly for personal reasons and curiosity, I’m heading to those places wondering if they will bring a sense of closure to something that’s been a big part of my life for a while now.
I’ll continue to write and document as I go. For right now, I mostly feel relieved that the work is done, and am excited looking ahead to showing the work for the first time next year. I’ll announce dates quite soon.
