The Picket Sentinels

Katy Mutton

The Picket Sentinels is a major installation derived from the Post War Project, which began in 2014.
The work explores the physical state of returned servicemen who were allocated blocks of land at Red Cliffs, Victoria, after WWI. The intention is to shift the viewer’s image of man as soldier, to the man (and one woman, a nurse) as survivor.
Many ex-servicemen who moved onto the land suffered from long term war related injuries including lung damage, deafness, loss of limbs and psychological trauma.
