Wilfred Owen Commemoration

Wilfred Owen Commemoration

Men Marched Asleep (2018) is a deeply evocative description of men exhausted by battle but continuing on. It conveys a journey-narrative that is saturated by time and toil, regimental history and personal loss during the Great War. This sense of movement is conveyed in parallel with the installation itself as series of historical objects, personal photographs, and artworks created by the local community, transport the visitor through an immersive and evocative environment peppered with lines taken from the poetry of Wilfred Owen.
