Bravo 22: The Art of Recovery Sculpture Exhibition

An extraordinary exhibition of life-size sculpture created by military veterans from Bravo 22 Company, Liverpool.

Led by Al Johnson, professional sculptor and Director of Art at Bravo 22 Company, the artists have explored their personal trauma and recovery by creating life-sized sculptures of themselves.

The participants created their sculptures during a 4-week workshop at The Bridewell Studios. Many of them had no previous art experience.

The sculptures focus on the head as the site of trauma, but also of creativity. The participants made a life cast of their own faces. The back of the head is formed from wire, creating a  cage that can be filled with references to each participant’s personal situation. The body of the sculpture is made of timber.
