TOWER POPPIES_

The Tower Poppies Takeover, aka ‘Operation Peace Take’, was a subversive crowd funded protest piece that saw a white poppy covertly placed within a sea of red ceramic poppies, representing the ‘glorious dead’, at the tower poppy memorial in 2014.

“The red poppy is intimately tied up with a series of myths about heroic sacrifice and necessary violence perpetuated by media led sensationalism that fuels a naive and ignorant patriotism. The truth is that war is vicious , bloody, inglorious, and that the soldiers we remember are there to kill and maim fellow human beings.
