Alice Cunningham

Refuge, 2017

Survival foil blankets (8x5x6m)

Site-specific installation for Shoreham (the most bombed village in the UK during the second world war).

I have fundraised for and worked at refugee camps building emergency shelters and running art workshops, and painting large-scale murals with camp residents and other artists. This artwork is inspired by my time in these camps.
