Royal Engineers Museum – Broken City Exhibition

In reflecting on the theme of broken cities, Annie Ross explores the enduring impact of environmental destruction, conflict, and natural disasters on both landscapes and communities. Through the creative mediums of drawing and glass sculptures, she strives to capture contemporary life with a sense of responsibility. Glass, known for its strength and fragility, symbolizes the dualities of horror and beauty within her sculptures, all crafted from recycled glass sourced from previous projects and experiments. Narrative plays a central role in her artistic expression, focusing on observation rather than explicit commentary or judgment. For Annie Ross, her role is not to propagate a message but to provoke contemplation, emphasize themes, and encourage analysis. She believes that amidst conflict, the act of constant re-creation, re-assemblage, and restructuring offers hope and potential for positive change. Ultimately, she advocates for creativity as an intrinsic response to conflict, essential for forging new paths forward with resilience and foresight.
