Susie MacMurray - "Cloud" installation
Great Hall, Winchester
"Cloud" is a monumental new artwork by artist Susie MacMurray.
Responding to conflict, loss and memory, and in particular the First World War, "Cloud" reflects the ominous presence of conflict which hung over Europe during 1914-18. This aerial work will hang from the roof of Winchester's Great Hall and hover above drifts of replica identity tags representing both fallen soldiers and those that returned.
"The war hung heavy over the population of this and other countries like a great storm cloud -- its shadow touching everyone and sucking individulas into its mass on an unprecedented scale. People who were left behind were affected just as profoundly as those who crossed the sea to fight." (Susie MacMurray 2015)
