CHARLIE SMITH LONDON presents four European artists to mark the centenary of the beginning of The Great War.
Working across mediums in installation, drawing and painting, Harold de Bree (Netherlands), Florian Heinke (Germany), Eric Manigaud (France) and Hugh Mendes (United Kingdom) have made new work in response to the brief. Each artist was specifically invited by gallery director Zavier Ellis for their ongoing investigations into world war, with it being a dominant theme in all of their practices. Hailing from European countries that played significant roles between 1914 and 1918, each artist approaches the theme with profound and reflective endeavour.
