Iron Harvest, Oscar van Heek

 

A siren wails, warning of imminent explosions – yet the impacts that follow are oddly regular, almost rhythmic. A century on, unexploded World War I ammunition is still being dug up and detonated safely
in what is termed an ‘Iron Harvest’. Oscar van Heek’s video and photography of controlled explosions recalls not just the Great War, but other wars fought since and still ongoing, the lethal legacy of former and current battlefields.
