Pages of the Sea

Private John Lynch - Pages of the Sea

Private John Lynch from the Pages of the Sea archive

Part of the 14-18-Now commissions, Pages of the Sea will be a poignant moment marking 100 years since armistice and the end of the First World War. Select beaches across the UK will see a portrait of an individual from the First World War emerge from the sand, only to wash away once the tide rises as spectators say their collective goodbyes. Poet Carol Ann Duffy has written a poem specifically to be read on the day.

If you would like to take part, you can browse the online gallery and say goodbye to those who left the shore. Alternatively, you can add your own image of someone from the First World War to the gallery and say a personal goodbye. A moving and beautiful tribute.

11 November, various locations across the UK

Tim Etchells - For Everything

Tim Etchells, For Everything (detail), 2018. Neon. Two transformers. 116 x 37 cm. Edition of 3 (1 AP). Photographer Jonathan Bassett.

Filling the gallery space with a 12 metre-long neon piece that reads ‘For everything that is shown something is hidden’, Tim Etchells love of language and text, spoken and written, is at the heart of what he does. Brilliantly playful and thought-provoking, the use of alternating letter illuminations disrupts the text to add a new layer of meaning.

You can catch For Everything at VITRINE until 20 January 2019, but we recommend you see it as you as you can!

2 Oct –  20 Jan, VITRINE London, SE1 3UN
