                This is a short extract from the dual-screen film installation 'Children of The Great War' by Simon Puriņš and Ivan Riches. The complete artwork is 48 minutes in duration. It was commissioned by Age Exchange as part of a wider project of the same name: Throughout 2013-14, Age Exchange worked across London to record interviews with members of the London public. The focus was on how families were affected by the conflict then, and across subsequent generations. People shared immensely moving personal histories, passed down from within their family. Age Exchange worked in partnership with many fine organisations across London to carry out open days, recording 127 interviews, as well as digitalising 5300 personal letters, photographs and period artefacts, brought by interviewees to the activity. This unparalleled collection of Londoners' family First World War histories will rest with the international archive Europeana 1914- 1918, for the learning of future generations. These personal stories of parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts from across the Home-front, the battlefields, skies and the sea, inspired the installation, as well as a new play. From the initial 127 interviews, the artists invited participants with different family accounts, with whom to work, on a more intimate level. These participants were asked to personally tell, or relate through younger actors, a particularly emotive story of specific personal value to them. The outcome of this process, forms a 'Portrait' screen of intimate and engaging stories and accounts told by 13 young and older participants, interlaced with imagery from related family photographs, letters and handed-down objects. Projected alongside is a 'Landscape' screen with imagery directly inspired by these 'Portrait' stories; an evocative collage of photographs, documents and objects from the Age Exchange Europeana 1914- 1918 collection and 1914-18 film footage from the Imperial War Museum and VAD Archive, subtlety entwined with photography and film taken by the artists in the landscape of contemporary Flanders. This 'Landscape' screen also has an original soundtrack composed by Ivan Riches, inspired by the music and poetry of Ivor Gurney.

                • Never Forgotten by Nic Joly

                  British artist Nic Joly has used his mastery of miniature sculpture to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I in his own inimitable fashion. Using the ultimate symbol of remembrance, the poppy, he has created a piece aptly entitled ‘Never Forgotten’. Nic’s initial inspiration came from a deeply poignant meeting with a ninety-six year old war veteran who talked Nic through not only his own experiences in World War II, but also those of his father in World War I. In that moment, past and present combined and history was no longer a chain of events in dusty text books; for Nic, it became “all so real, and so relevant”. With humbling nonchalance, the veteran uttered words that will forever resonate with courage and fortitude: “We were just doing our job.” The realisation that veterans seek remembrance for the sacrifice made by fallen comrades, rather than sympathy and awe, inspired Nic to create Never Forgotten. He shared a photo of his completed piece on social media and received a phenomenal response, with over 28,000 people sharing the image, and many using it to comment on the bravery of those who fought, share memories of loved ones that were lost in battle and express their gratitude for the freedom we now enjoy. Nic was overwhelmed that something he had created could move people so much. Recognising this opportunity, he insisted that the original was auctioned for a veterans’ charity, where it raised a staggering £7,500. Following on from that triumph, we are delighted to announce that we are releasing a bronze edition of Never Forgotten to mark the centenary. The edition size is 1,566 – to mark every day the war was fought. Each piece will be labelled by day and date on the back with a small piece of information about the First World War. So that each piece is as individual as each day in the war, and each life lost. Castle Galleries is donating £100 from the sale of every piece to The Royal British Legion, to help Nic reach his goal of raising £150,000 to help support war veterans past and present. “In my own small way, I want this piece to remind us that all those who have given their lives, in conflicts from World War I until the present day, will be Never Forgotten.” – Nic Joly www.castlegalleries.com/neverforgotten
