In 2014 Historic Royal Palaces commissioned a major installation commemorating the execution of spies in the First and Second World War at the Tower of London. The publicly accessible tactile installation comprises three ‘desks’ and a rifle rack relating the short journey from arrest and evidence through to sentencing and execution. The bronzes are located on the walkway between the Martin and Constable towers and are positioned above the rifle range where the executions took place.
Desk 1 – images of the spies using a new ‘artcast’ technique
Desk 2 – evidence: objects and documents
Desk 3 – sentencing: newspaper headline, last letter, map and execution order
Rifle rack – three rifles
The installation opened to the public in November 2014.
