Remaking Picasso’s Guernica (2012-)

Description

I am a part of a collective project, ‘Re-making Picasso’s Guernica’, which brings together artists, activists and communities to share the skills of making and the experiences of countering fascism and militarism. Our large-scale textile piece functions as a banner for exhibition and actions. It is both a work of art and an act of protest.

We made the famous pieces from Picass’s Guernica and are stitching them onto a large piece of fabric at a series of public sewing events in 2013. Venues include The Jubilee Library in Brighton in June, Friends Meeting House in July and at the re-opening of The Level in Brighton in September.
