'God's Wars'


‘God's Wars', by May Ayres finds a home in The Belfry and Vestibule of St John on Bethnal Green. This is the first time that these large ceramic works can be viewed together in her first solo exhibition since 1985. The exhibition presents meditations on war and peace selected from her 'War of Aggression' series, created out of anger and reflection over the last seven years. The pieces attempt to address the question - how might we retain our common humanity and memory in the face of such barbarism as now exists? ‘When words fail us, we need to look to the silence in order to find any answers'. The exhibition opens on Thursday 1st September as part of the Whitechapel Gallery's First Thursday program. There will be a bar on the opening night.
