Huge photo mosaic of the Queen on show at Turner Contemporary - Kent News

Huge photo mosaic of the Queen on show at Turner Contemporary - Kent News

Jubilee artwork on display in Margate the size of a double-decker bus

A photo mosaic of the Queen that is the size of a double-decker bus is on display this weekend.

The incredible artwork was created by Helen Marshall for BBC South East to celebrate the Jubilee.

It will be on show at Margate’s Turner Contemporary this weekend, which is one of the few galleries in Kent big enough to cope with the sheer size.

It will be les than a year since the Queen herself visited the new gallery.

The artwork is made up of more than 50,000 photos sent in by viewers of the show. Using the basic colour of the snap, Marshall used a special computer programme to map out the pictures to create images of the Queen as she is now, and as she was during the coronation.

The work is called The People’s Monarch. One person who donated a picture is Philippa Wilson from New Romney. She sent in a photograph which captured the moment when she was reunited with her husband, Private Paul Wilson, on his return from six months’ duty in Afghanistan.

She said: “The photo captures the emotion of our first hug. I feel it would be a wonderful addition to your mosaic as he had just returned from fighting for Queen and country and is very patriotic.”

And third generation British Indian Baljit Balrow from Maidstone, sent in a picture of herself wearing traditional Indian jewellery and a Union Jack painted on her face.

Baljit said: “I want this picture to represent our proud multicultural Britain. No matter how much you adapt to another culture, it doesn’t mean you lose your cultural roots.”

Vicki Berry, producer for BBC South East, said: “Thousands of people submitted family portraits, photos of their ancestors, snaps of important occasions in their lives and of times that made them laugh. Many used the opportunity to remember loved ones they had lost, sharing precious memories.

“Stand up close to our portrait and you will see a mass of touching, funny or inspirational photos – step back 20 paces and it transforms to become a double portrait of the Queen.”

The work is on show at Turner Contemporary on Saturday and Sunday.
