Adad Hannah will create a new work based on the epic First World War painting, Gassed by John Singer Sargent.
Adad Hannah is known for cleverly staged tableaux vivant videos that re-enact famous historical paintings and artworks. In his latest project, Hannah is using John Singer Sargent’s epic 1919 painting, Gassed. Taking inspiration from the regimental and archival collections at the Military Museums, the artist will work with over 40 volunteers for 12 days to build the set for this project, film models, and install the exhibition.
This project will require the participation of many community members.
