IT'S the iconic piece of art that touched a nation as it remembered centenary of the Great War.

Now Wave, by Paul Cummins and his installation designer Tom Piper, will go on display at a Hampshire museum.

The exhibition will run from April 13 to June 24 at Royal Armouries Fort Nelson in Fareham.

The presentations by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, give people across the UK the chance to experience the impact of the ceramic poppy sculptures in a range of places of particular First World War resonance.

The tour has been made possible by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the Backstage Trust, Clore Duffield Foundation and the National Lottery.

Siona Mackelworth, Interim Public Engagement Director at the Royal Armouries said: “We are delighted to be presenting such an iconic sculpture at the Royal Armouries site at Fort Nelson.

“The Fort will provide an inspiring location for visitors to reflect 100 years on from the final days of the First World War.”

Wave and Weeping Window are from the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red – poppies and original concept by artist Paul Cummins and installation designed by Tom Piper.

The installation was originally at the Tower of London from August to November 2014 where 888,246 poppies were displayed, one for every British or Colonial life lost at the Front during the First World War.

Together, the sculptures Wave and Weeping Window are made of over 11,000 poppies. At the end of the tour they will become part of the permanent collections at Imperial War Museums.

Fort Nelson is part of a large ring of forts built to defend the naval base of Portsmouth, and one of five forts built on Portsdown Hill in the 1860s.

The Fort is open from 10 am – 5 pm. Admission is free.
