The Lion & The Unicorn
The Lion & The Unicorn
Gitta Gschwendtner (2011)
The original 1951 Lion and Unicorn Pavilion housed a flight of ceramic birds symbolising migration and freedom of speech. In homage to this piece, artist Gitta Gschwendtner has created a new installation in collaboration with young people from refugee groups across London. Their poems, printed and spoken here, reinterpret original themes of strength and imagination.
Many of the artists involved in the Festival of Britain were from refugee backgrounds and the Lion and Unicorn sculpture celebrates and lays stark the stories of young people new to Britain, releasing their words into the world.
