Rozanne Hawksley: War And Memory
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 14TH NOVEMBER 2014
Rozanne Hawksley is one of the UK's great textile art innovators. At once poignant and powerful, her work explores the nature and meaning of the commemoration of war, considering the impact of conflict on combatants, family, friends and ultimately the nation. Rozanne Hawksley: War and Memory examines remembrance, representation and memory in the setting of the Queens House, which was once a school for sailors. The installation features new work alongside pieces from throughout Hawksley's acclaimed career including: Seamstress And The Sea which refers to the artist's maternal grandmother, a widow who sewed sailor's collars for a living from the First World War until her death during World War Two; Prisoner, a sculpture created as a response to the work of the photographer Don McCullin; plus works from the memorials series.
