Shot At Dawn

Shot At Dawn


A great tragedy of War, in remembrance of those lost and damaged in conflict, both physically and mentally.
This exhibition reflects the tragic execution of soldiers in World War 1. The men were shot for desertion, mutiny, cowardice (even if it was caused by shell shock or other mental affections), and other breaches of discipline.

Café Trinity open Friday and Saturday for homemade cakes, soup and bread.
Visitors are welcome to contribute their own poppies when they visit the installation.
Coach parties welcome. Entry to the church is free.

Born and bred in Hull, Martin Waters first created the poppy installations at Hulls Holy Trinity Church in 2011. Martin has gone on to create many different poppy artworks since then, in Hull and all over the North of England.
He was the first Artist in Residence for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Spurn Point making artwork from the plastic detritus that litters our beaches. It was the discovery of red poppy wreaths washed up onto the beach that lead to the creation of artworks that explore the theme of war and conflict today.
He explores remembrance and reflects on the past and present horrors of war through large poppy installations, paintings, prints and assemblages. More examples of his work can be seen on his website.
