A collaborative work, Flowers of War is inspired by World War One stories and artefacts gathered from local communities and museums. It considers the many ways people reflect upon the past. More stories will be collected and artworks created to add to the wreath. This exhibition presents the wreath for the first time in the United Kingdom. The work will continue to grow and be presented in other locations internationally until 2019.
