"The machines work from 7am until 10pm all through the year, apart from two weeks off. They just pound out these poppies and send them all over the world to 80 different countries. It will never stop, I can't imagine it ever stopping"- Cornelia Parker

The Usher Gallery presents Cornelia Parker's video work War Machine, filmed in the Aylesford factory where British Legion Poppies are produced, the relentless production methods allow a focus for remembrance, but also echo the production systems behind war.
