History in the Making: Reflections on 2019
This work is part of a curated section of 10 artworks that look back on significant events in 2019. You can see more details on all the artwork in this series here.
The title of this second work by Molly Hankinson in History in the Making, is a direct quote from Extinction Rebellion’s response to a wedding ceremony of a queer couple that took place amongst their protest on Westminster Bridge on the 7th October this year.
As well as celebrating free love and giving visibility to queer voices, the contextual message of their marriage is clear: Fight now if you want a future, and fight now for the future of others.
The work was created using a combination of hand-drawn and digital illustration techniques, this
work exists solely as a giclée print as its original and only medium.
