The Barnbow tragedy

This is part of my response to the incident that occurred 100 years ago in a munitions factory at Barnbow Leeds. (There is also an old watch attached to the frame stopped at the time of the explosion) Previously shown at Falmouth Poly a few years ago.
People coming into the gallery/exhibition can tie a yellow ribbon onto the mannequin as part of an ongoing remembrance piece.


more information about the Barnbow casualties can be read here (Leeds library blog)
