Cicatrix: The Scar of a Healed Wound

Wednesday, 12 September | 11.00 am - Saturday, 1 December | 4.30 pm

| Free

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.
