Scale of destruction

To mark 100 years since the start of World War One, St Paul’s Cathedral commissioned artist Jerry Judah’s creation of two crosses hanging either side of the nave. Their almost lichen-like growth is in fact scale models of bombed-out buildings, representing the horrific impact of war on cities. ‘Bombs expose the private, the personal the intimate,’ says Judah. ‘The skin of a building ripped away to show lives ended in a single blast.’ See these and Bill Viola’s ‘Martyrs’ free Monday-Friday at 11.30am and 2.15pm.
