WOMEN WALKED ONTO THE BASE LAST TUESDAY

Indo, 133 Whitechapel Rd, London, E1 1DT.

6th June - 2nd July 2016 Open daliy noon until midnight.

This exhibition documents Carol and Kirsty’s time spent on CND protests and at the peace camp at Greenham common in 1984. Images are blown up from Carol’s personal archive and plastered directly onto the walls while objects, such as the balloon and noticeboard, are recreated using the original photographs as source material.

To a 5 year old the atmosphere at protests felt communal, celebratory and often wet, cold and muddy. The show embodies this perspective of nostalgia rather than the militant activism that was often countered by police brutality.

A note from a Greenham Woman I met during the exhibition, relating a song that they used to sing on camp.
