Museum seeks to document all of the civic war memorials that exist in every sizable village, town and city in this country. As many of these structures have now either past or are approaching their centenary I am interested in considering the fragile nature of materials alongside the fragile nature of memory. Together the memorials form a staggering array of structures that all hold the same specific sculptural concern. The work will provide a singular holding place for all structures that pertain to commemorate those who have died as a result of war. The work will be a ‘museum’ to commemorate the commemorated.
