The Lion and the Unicorn

Paying homage to the original 1951 Lion and Unicorn Exhibition, this 2011 Installation by Gitta Gschwendtner works with the original themes which are reinterpreted. Lion = Bravery and Courage and Unicorn = Imagination and Independance. Gitta worked with 50 refugees whose spoken and written poems are on pieces of paper in the Installation. Worth the visit the Installation is both beautiful and fragile with paper flapping in the wind and birds flying in the sky. The exhibition is part of the Southbank Hayward Gallery and Visual Arts Programme.
