“War. What is it good for? Absolutely Nothing.” We’ve all heard these lines before. But it’s pictures that truly speak louder than words. In a new group show, three international artists come together to show viewers the aftermaths and effects of war. Traces Of War includes photographs, and film and multimedia installations by Shaun Gladwell, Jananne Al-Ani and Indian artist Baptist Coelho. A hard-hitting look at the side of conflict one rarely experiences, the exhibition aims to help viewers gain a deeper understanding into the perils of battle. As the press note for the show says, ‘ Baptist’s works seek to illustrate the form of human-shaped media-landscapes and often contend with conflict, emotions, environment, history, culture and gender’.

Traces of War is on display at Kings College, London (Inigo Rooms, Somerset House East Wing) until December 18, 2016.
