British artists and twin sisters Jane and Louise Wilson utilize photography and other media to revisit locations associated with recent European history. Their 2006 series Sealander features bunkers erected by Hitler along the European Atlantic coast during World War II. Once symbols of strength and defense, the fortifications have long been abandoned. The Wilsons’ monumental photographs emphasize the alien character of these concrete structures against the rugged coastline; the series title refers to this transitional space between sea and land.
This exhibition is comprised of four large-scale photographs, including one that was donated to the Museum, as well as video documentation of the original Sealander presentation and other installation elements.
