About the Work

Just outside Wolverhampton, hidden in the protected woodlands of Cannock Chase, lies the largest German War Cemetery in the U.K. For the young, the cemetery remains largely unknown. It is a world away from modern Wolverhampton, the centre of which is covered with shopping malls and Euro stores.
In this work I have tried to say something about the relationship between these two places. The City of Wolverhampton's motto is 'Out Of Darkness Cometh Light'. The title is the German translation.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
