Flowers of War, RWA, Bristol

This collaborative, commemorative work is inspired by real stories from the First World War. Photographs, stories and ephemera were submitted by local communities, museums and archives. Artists Elizabeth Turrell RWA, Kirsten Haydon and Neal Haslem, then transformed these memories into wild flowers and leaves, sculpted from enamel and metal. Visitors will have the opportunity to contribute their own stories and create paper botanical forms. 

25 April, 3pm - 5pm
Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

To mark this occasion, Flowers of War artist and co-curator Elizabeth Turrell RWA will be available in the exhibition space to talk to the public.
