Flowers of War artist and co-curator Elizabeth Turrell RWA speaks about the collaborative commemorative enamel art work at The Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, UK on 25 April 2018.
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
