Poppies: Weeping Window
14th October 2017 until the 3rd December 2017
Ulster Museum Belfast

Presented by 14-18 NOW, National Museums NI and Belfast International Arts Festival bring Poppies: Weeping Window to Belfast, for people from Northern Ireland and across the island of Ireland to experience this unique, powerful and deeply moving sculpture.

The sculpture by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper is one of two touring as part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary. As with all 14-18 NOW projects, the presentation of this sculpture to new audiences across the UK aims to prompt a new, nationwide dialogue around the legacy of the war. Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below. Together with a second sculptural work, Wave, they formed part of the iconic installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ at the Tower of London in 2014, and were visited by over five-million people.
