This catalogue essay, written by Whiting for the exhibition 'Cicatrix: The Scar of a Healed Wound' explores the empathetic spaces of the artwork and contexts surrounding the work.

Item Type: Book Chapter or Section

The Cicatrix exhibition (12 September - 1 December 2018) at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery , Bath Road, Swindon, marks the centenary of WW1 and offers an alternative viewpoint of events concerned with The Great War and the concept of scarring; the physical marks left behind, seen as part of the landscape... and then the other scars. Commonwealth Artists Sophie Cape, Catherine Farish and Caro Williams were invited to make work for the project alongside British artists Henny Burnett, Susan Francis and Prudence Maltby. The Project has been supported by Wiltshire Council, Arts Council of Great Britain, British Council, Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, Heritage Lottery Fund, Australian High Commission, Government of Canada, High Commission of Canada, and Québec and the New Zealand High Commission.
