Makeshift Monuments was created over two years in the
Bradford Hungarian Cultural and Social Centre, during the run up to
its closure in the summer of 2010.
This site specific installation of photographs is pasted
directly onto the walls of the disused social club. Viewers are
invited to move through the old dancehall, the bar room and the
empty rooms upstairs to see the exhibition.
Photographer Diane Bielik's father Attila was an active
member of the club for many years. The news of its closure was the
impetus to begin photographing the club, triggering a desire to
'capture' this place before it was gone.
An Impressions Gallery off-site project.
