During lockdown Lisa Traxler responded to her home, a decommissioned WW2 radar bunker on the site where she lives on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. With re-found family letters from her great uncle, posted overseas during this war, she responds not only to the defence architecture of the bunker but his letters home creating a powerful body of sculptural works alongside a two part podcast and educational resource workshop and worksheets shared by Art UK. The newly commissioned works will be exhibited in London at the Foundry Gallery and on the Isle of Wight in the bunker setting. This project was made possible by grant funding from Arts Council England.
