Ruth Ewan has created a new limited edition print for Chisenhale Gallery marking the realisation of her offsite commission Dreadnoughts (July 2010) and the culmination of her year-long residency in three Tower Hamlets’ secondary schools, exploring the radical history of East London.
The limited edition brings together nine small drawings, by four Year Eight boys from St Paul's Way School, on found cigarette cards from the early 20th century collected by Ruth Ewan. Taking inspiration from Sylvia Pankhurst's transformation of a local pub, The Gunmakers' Arms, into a nursery known as The Mothers' Arms in 1914, the boys were invited to apply the same pacifist logic to a series of images of warships.
Ruth Ewan is a Scottish artist based in London.
