Award winning Brighton social artist Elizabeth Eade will give a talk, and show her prize winning work about migrant deaths, Die Liste, at the opening of The Spectre of the Real Exhibition, at Brighton’s BMECP Centre, 4pm, 13 April 2019.

Elizabeth Eade’s artwork Die Liste is a 10m-long, hand written list documenting the names and circumstances of death of 33,305 migrants who died attempting to enter Europe.

This will be the first opportunity to view the artwork in Brighton since it won the £10,000 HIX Art Award in 2018.

“The scale of the tragedy is so vast, and my work was to highlight the impossible task of comprehending its scale. This is contrasted with the individual stories. Each line is a story of hope and adventure and ultimately tragedy, of very human endeavour, of brothers and sister and mothers and children.”

    The photo of Elizabeth Eade with her work is by Josie Taylor. Annoyingly, the caption has been stripped out during the ‘Reblog’ from Raphael Delamer. Until I can recreate this page here, please note the photo credit.
