In response to a brief to 'revisit and remake' an existing piece of artwork, this project took inspiration and put a modern spin on the art of George Grosz, specifically his painting 'The Funeral'. As Grosz's piece alludes to the plague, the basis for our work was the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown in the UK. The resulting outcome, a cardboard city sculpture, comprised different elements, including doll house-style rooms, paper-collaged walls and billboards, and string puppets. Each aspect of the cardboard city commented on different elements of the pandemic, including isolation, political scandals and lockdown restrictions.
