The Crusader by Gerry Judah
The Crusader, a sculpture by artist Gerry Judah, represents the artist’s reaction to global conflict.
6 November 2010 - March 2015
Gerry Judah’s striking sculpture on the impact of war and conflict is the first exhibit you will see on entering our Main Exhibition Space.
The Crusader, created by renowned contemporary artist Gerry Judah, is a seven-metre-high, three-dimensional structure covered with a web of war-torn buildings.
This specially commissioned piece is Judah’s own reaction to our themes and architecture. It reflects on modern-day wars, but also resonates with the history of world conflict, making a powerful and thought-provoking statement about the devastating effect of war on our lives.
