Imperial War Museum North Exhibits a New Sculpture by Renowned Contemporary Artist Gerry Judah
Gerry Judah’s new piece, entitled The Crusader.
MANCHESTER.- The huge work of art is the first exhibit visitors will see on entering the Museum’s Main Exhibition Space.

Gerry Judah’s new piece, entitled The Crusader, has been created in direct response to contemporary global conflict. It reflects on modern day wars but also resonates with the history of world conflict, showing how war has and continues to shape lives. This makes it a powerful and thought-provoking piece at Remembrance.

This striking, snow white sculpture comprises a seven metre, three-dimensional structure covered with a web of war torn buildings. The setting in Imperial War Museum North’s landmark building – designed to represent a globe shattered by conflict - is fitting as Judah’s work is a reaction to the Museum’s architecture, as well as its and themes of war and conflict.

The Crusader is the culmination of five years of engagement with conflict in which Judah has created a series of three-dimensional paintings of war damaged cities, inspired by recent global events. It is the first and only sculpture in this body of work, which was initially conceived when Judah produced the acclaimed Auschwitz-Birkenau model for the Holocaust Exhibition in Imperial War Museum London in 2000.

This is the second piece in Imperial War Museum North's Reactions artist intervention programme. The programme works with artists who then create new work in response to the Museum's displays, themes and architecture, encouraging visitors to question, critique and respond during their visit.
