About

A brand new exhibition telling the story of Artist Loz Atkinson’s Great Grandfather Arthur Pinder. Recounting his death in WW2 and her journey up an Italian mountain to create art in his memory. The exhibition supported by Arts Council England, is a dynamic display combining Contemporary art and History to explore ideas of sacrifice and remembrance.

Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2, the exhibition explores the universal need to connect with our personal heritage. Discovering how objects turn into relics and hold powerful memories, Loz shows how with time these objects can convey new meaning despite being made from the debris of the past. Artworks on show include recovered WW2 Halifax aircraft parts such as a Bristol Hercules engine reworked into sculpture. Also on display are artworks created directly into the landscape of the mountain and wreckage collected from the crash site.
