Cicatrix is a centenary project which reflects the story of Wiltshire during World War I. It is a contemporary art exhibition by Prudence Maltby, Susan Francis and Henny Burnett joined by Commonwealth artists Caro Williams (New Zealand), Catherine Farish (Canada) and Sophie Cape (Australia). Cicatrix is a collaborative exhibition incorporating painting, drawing, sculpture, film, print and sound installation.
This touring exhibition examines the concept of scarring: the physical marks left behind, scars on the Wiltshire landscape, and other scars, obscured but clearly evident as memories mapped within those who’ve experienced conflict.
Cicatrix is a member of the First World War Centenary Partnership, led by Imperial War Museums, and forms a network of regional, national and international cultural and educational organisations.
Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is the only venue where this exhibition will be displayed in its entirety.
Please note that this exhibition will be unavailable to view on Thursday 28 November between 2pm and 4.30pm, due to a private event.
