THE TWILIGHT KINGDOM

We would like to thank Steph Goodger for kindly fundraising for us.

Please take a look at her powerful paintings representing the Calais Refugee Camp, otherwise known as the Jungle during the demolitions.  You can find more about the work we did in the camp during this time, by reading our report here.

This collection of paintings has a tremendous significance for us and we hope the money raised will go a long way in providing relief to women and children in the Dunkirk Refugee Champ

These are 7 signed limited edition giclée prints on archival rag paper by Steph Goodger, taken from a series of oil paintings the artist recently completed of the Calais Jungle. The title of the series, The Twilight Kingdom, is taken from TS Eliot’s poem, The Hollow Man. Eliot describes it as a kind of limbo place; as twilight is a kind of limbo time. Goodger has made a series of paintings based on the last week of the life of the jungle before its dramatic closure in late October, 2016. This action left the population, already weakened by war and human rights violations, left adrift in what the artist describes as a ‘maze of administration’ only to reappear on the streets of Calais or Dunkirk, sleeping rough months later. The artist is donating all the proceeds of these print sales to the Help4Refugee Children appeal for Women and Children to buy food, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, basic toiletries and sanitary products.
