Flowers of warFlowers of war

A collaborative commemorative enamel work of art

The appearance of cornflowers and poppies on the battlefields at the end of the First World War symbolised for many the fragility of life and the hope of rebirth.

This collaborative work of art comprises enamelled floral emblems of remembrance, inspired by those found on the battlefield and at home.

Measuring over two metres in diameter and composed of more than 400 individual handcrafted brooches, Flowers of war draws on stories of the First World War from local community archives and museums to consider the many ways people reflect upon the past.

Flowers of war is a collaboration between the artists Kirsten Haydon (NZ), Elizabeth Turrell (UK) and Neal Haslem (AUST). This project is supported by the Creative New Zealand WW100 Co-commissioning Fund and RMIT University.
