Dilwara Begum: The Send Off

On the pebbled beach of Folkestone, at 5.45pm, blood sweat + tears artists and Helen Jones Exhibitions Curator at The New Art Gallery Walsall sit and observe my final ceremony for the stones. As the tide comes in it takes each piece of ‘Migration of Dead Weight’ to its final resting place. There was silence as each gathered their thoughts during this meditative moment.


Saranjit Birdi later said: ‘I saw it more like a funeral, shrouded bodies being put out to sea’



Washed away by the incoming tide
