Mark Anstee: Enchantment of Distance

cropped-siege-mentally.jpgMark Anstee has been making work about war, conflict and the monuments that commemorate battle since his time at Goldsmith’s College in the 1980’s. His focus has always remained on the markers at either end of conflict; the preparation manifested in toys, games, stories of the heroic, and the commemoration of the dead in the proliferation of public monuments.

Mark will be showing work on Level 4 from 17 October 2014 to 18 January 2015.  This is an off-site project curated by the John Hansard Gallery (details here) and will run parallel to the exhibition on war and warfare in the Special Collections Gallery.
