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.
