Poppies: Weeping WindowAfter capturing the nation's imagination back in 2014 with their poignant display Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London, Paul Cummings and Tom Piper have once again dressed a London landmark in poppies to commemorate the First World War. Poppies: Weeping Window sees a cascade of several thousand handmade ceramic poppies pour from the domed roof at IWM London to the ground. It's a striking image that marks the end of the UK poppies tour.

 

About IWM London (Imperial War Museums)

The IWM London, the flagship Imperial War Museum which offers a thoughtful look at what day-to-day life is like for both citizens and soldiers in times of conflict, re-opened on 19th July 2014 with a dramatic new atrium space by Fosters + Partners, and new permanent First World War Galleries, a highlight of which is a trench complete with periscopes, sounds and projections recreating what life was like behind the front line on the Western Front.
