Artist Holly Davey commemorates 75 years since the Plymouth Blitz with a commission inspired by her family history and Lee Miller’s photograph of a bombed out chapel. Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery was one of the few buildings to survive the bombing and is about to embark on a major redevelopment. Working with ideas around objects, collection and memory, fragile items from one of the large glass cabinets on the balcony will be replaced with rubble.

A Plymouth Arts Centre commission in partnership with Plymouth City Council (Arts and Heritage) for the History Centre.
