Mark Anstee: Enchantment of Distance

Mark Anstee: Enchantment of Distance

17 October 2014 – 18 January 2015

Mark 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.

In this Centenary Year, amidst a renewed public interest in WW1, Anstee is looking back over past works and questioning the narrative in-between.

Enchantment of Distance was part of the University of Southampton’s Great War: Unknown War programme – a series of events, talks, workshops and conferences taking place in 2014-15 across campus, as part of the wider global WW1 commemoration.
