A Graphic War
In 2014/2015 I won a Leverhulme Trust Award to undertake a 10-month artist’s residency with Leeds Museums and Galleries. As part of the project, I researched the graphic design of Leeds Museum’s First World War collection, and produced several large-scale sculptures in response. These sculptures were exhibited across Leeds in November 2015 as part of a city-wide sculpture trail entitled ‘A Graphic War’, curated by Lucy Moore. Work was showcased at venues including Trinity Shopping Centre, Kirkgate Market, Colours May Vary, and Leeds City Museum.
The exhibition saw over 2 million viewers/visitors during its month-long run and was featured by media outlets including the BBC, the Yorkshire Evening News, Made In Leeds TV, and the Times Colonist newspaper, Canada.
