Gary Baseman’s Mythical Homeland delves into the real and imagined histories of generations past, interpreting the Holocaust and its lasting effects on culture and identity. Drawings, paintings, and photographs and a short film documentary entitled Mythical Creatures are installed in a small birch tree forest, referencing the very environment into which Baseman’s father fled and survived among other freedom fighters during World War II. This is the Los Angeles artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK.
