Katy Mutton: Secret Aerodrome No.2

A Collection of New Work by Katy Mutton

Secret Aerodrome No.2 is a contemporary exploration into a family narrative of grief and longing. The loss came from the accidental death of RAF serviceman No. 406030 on February 12, 1942, at Secret Aerodrome No.2, Palembang, Indonesia. The pieces examine the imaginings of a family trying to come to terms with his death in an unfamiliar place and culture.
