Queen and Country A project by Steve McQueen


18 March 2009 - 3 May 2009
Steve McQueen, Queen and Country Photography: David Parry, PA

Queen and Country commemorates British service men and women who have lost their lives in Iraq. A project by Turner Prize winner and official war artist Steve McQueen, the work consists of a large oak cabinet with vertical drawers containing a series of facsimile postage stamp sheets. Each sheet is dedicated to a fallen member of the Armed Forces and features a photographic portrait chosen by their families.
