Dedicated to the Unknown Artists consists of 14 panels, featuring over 300 original postcards depicting waves crashing onto shores around Britain. A large map annotated with each of the locations featured in the postcards is included in the first panel. The title identifies the work as a tribute to the overlooked and forgotten artists who painted, photographed or hand-tinted the numerous seaside images. By making such commonplace objects the subject of a dedicated and extensive presentation, Hiller gives the mundane new status. This work also demonstrates Hiller’s interest in the theme of memory and memorials.
