A talk by Mark Anstee; war, conflict and battle specialist artist

12 January 2016 | 16:00

The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries School of Art and Design welcome everyone to a talk by visiting speaker Mark Anstee, a war, conflict and battle specialist artist.

The talk will take place on Tuesday 12th January at 4pm in the University of Portsmouth’s Park building, room PK 3.03.

Mark Anstee has been making work about war, conflict and the monuments that commemorate battle since his time at Goldsmith’s College in the 1980’s. His focus has always remained on the markers at either end of conflict; the preparation manifested in toys, games, stories of the heroic, and the commemoration of the dead in the proliferation of public monuments.

In this Centenary Year, amidst a renewed public interest in WW1, Mark will be looking back over past works and questioning the narrative in-between. Read more here

Mark’s creative piece, RAMMYRIORAMA, is a play on the myriorama – a Victorian spectacle of moving images. Pre-dating film, these monumental scrolls unwound to reveal painted panoramas of great historic events, heroic battles or epic journeys through newly discovered foreign lands. See more here
