100 Poppies

A series of 100 mono screen prints of the 100 poppies Dawn Cole collected from the Lochnagar Crater. These poppies, scattered and left to decay, say more to about acts of remembrance and memorialisation than wearing one pinned to the lapel and the experience of visiting the crater back in 2015 and seeing these discarded poppies was the catalyst for the From Wasteland to Wasteland project.

The poppies collected were recorded, mapped, numbered, archived and brought back to Dawn’s studio where 100 monoprints were made to represent each one. On the reverse of each print is a map made from a topographical drawing (although not an accurate one) of the crater and showing the location where that particular poppy was found.
