Kenny Hunter addresses the past and present use of memorials. What they are for, what do they represent, how they can be used as sites of reflection, and who do they serve? 


The artist will also install a temporary sculpture in the Japanese Garden at UCL, which will form part of the event. Together the artwork and the discussion will explore the role of monument and its role in shaping aspects of collective memory and national identity. 

Kenny Hunter is an artist, lecturer and Director of Outreach at the Edinburgh College of Art. 

Part of the UCL Year of Sculpture 2019.
