Shared Experience: Art and War
Casualties deals with the price people paid during the war, whether they were civilians or military personnel. Young airmen lost their lives while flying on bombing operations over Europe, and damaged aircraft became surreal objects in the landscape. Those who survived often suffered extensive burns and required treatment. In the jungles locals carried the wounded over rough terrain in order to reach medical facilities. Those who didn’t survive were buried by their mates in moving rituals.
