Camp, 2000, 12:00
Based on real-life experiences, “camp” recounts the stories of homosexual survivors of the WWII concentration camps. A series of short, expressionistic vignettes weave together these horrific experiences. Part documentary, part drama, “camp” uses a variety of mediums to explore the emotional reality of those marked with the pink triangle.
Wrik Mead has been exhibiting film, video and mixed media works internationally for over two decades. He often returns to themes of queer identity, fairy-tale allegory and narratives of desire and accommodation. He is a Goldsmith’s, Fine Arts graduate and currently lives in Toronto where he is Chair of Media & Installation Art at OCAD University.
