Lizzie Hughes was selected from 380 applicants to take up the second of four solo residencies taking place at The Art House during 2016/17. During her month long residency at The Art House Lizzie used the opportunity to travel across West Yorkshire, photographing war memorials located in its towns and villages. The photographs on display mark the starting point for a work titled Museum that ultimately aims to document memorials found across the UK. 

The artist developed the idea for the work after hearing numerous news reports about memorials being vandalised and falling into disrepair, realising that "their sudden apparent vulnerability caused me to consider them not as individual structures, but as one enormous collection containing thousand upon thousand of variations on a form and with this, more and more intriguing".
