PAGES OF THE SEA

by Danny Boyle

On 11th November 2018, I will be inviting people to come together to mark 100 years since the Armistice and the end of the First World War so that all across the United Kingdom we can commemorate the lives lost, affected and changed irrevocably as a result of this global conflict.’ - Danny Boyle, Director

Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea (part of 14-18 Now) took place on the 11th November 2018. It was curated across 32 locations in the U.K to remember a war that ended the lives of millions of Allied and Colonial service men and women, devastating whole villages, towns and cities with the loss of family and friends. 

Clara was one of The National Theatre of Scotland's  Community Artists in Fife, who engaged a range communities from school groups to residential care homes to engage with Carol Ann Duffy's Poem 'Wounds in Time' as an exploration of who the participants would they say goodbye to as their personal contribution to the remembrance.

On the 11 November 2018, members of the public and local communities were invited to gather on these West Sands,

St Andrews as part of an informal, nationwide gesture of remembrance for the men and women who left their home shores during the First World War, many of them never to return. 

 

The remembrance  event centred on the drawing of a large-scale portrait of a casualty from the conflict on each of the beaches with a connection to that community, in this case Dr Elise Inglis.  They were designed by sand artists Sand in Your Eye, to be washed away as the tide comes in as a final goodbye.
