This year, the annual Remembrance Sunday commemorations will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War as well as the centenary of the permanent Cenotaph in Whitehall and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.

Artist David Dunnico has created War Work, a new exhibition at Altrincham’s AIR Gallery which explores the memorials and rituals that surround the war and how they have influenced our perception of later conflicts, to coincide with the occasion. The exhibition includes prints, sculpture, installations and video inspired by Dunnico’s interest in the First World War including the Cenotaph, two-minute silence and the poppy.
