Award winning Brighton social artist Elizabeth Eade will give a talk, and show her prize winning work about migrant deaths, Die Liste, at the opening of The Spectre of the Real Exhibition, at Brighton’s BMECP Centre, 4pm, 13 April 2019.

Elizabeth Eade’s artwork Die Liste is a 10m-long, hand written list documenting the names and circumstances of death of 33,305 migrants who died attempting to enter Europe.

This will be the first opportunity to view the artwork in Brighton since it won the £10,000 HIX Art Award in 2018.

“The scale of the tragedy is so vast, and my work was to highlight the impossible task of comprehending its scale. This is contrasted with the individual stories. Each line is a story of hope and adventure and ultimately tragedy, of very human endeavour, of brothers and sister and mothers and children.”

Elizabeth Eade - Die Liste detailThe list was compiled by an organisation called United.

“The story as a whole is an epic, and tells of international health, politics, crime and economics, of murder and misadventure, of starvation and corruption and greed.”

Elizabeth Eade lives and works in Brighton. She will put the award towards her studio costs and a solo exhibition at HIX ART in London in 2019.

The exhibition, entitled Spectre of the Real, features the work of 21 international artists, and will be held at SEAS Socially Engaged Art Salon in Brighton’s BMECP Centre 13-21 April.

The Opening reception will be held at 4pm, 13 April, and is open to the public, and there will be opportunities for interviews and photographs. Elizabeth Eade and other artists will give short artist talks.
