Edited book

The Myriad Legacies of 1917: A Year of War and Revolution

The Myriad Faces of War: 1917 and its Legacy symposium (http://myriadfaces.org) facilitated this 2018 publication edited by representatives of the organising institutions. Editors: Maartje Abbenhuis, Neill Atkinson, Kingsley Baird, and Gail Romano, London: Palgrave Macmillan. ISBN 978-3-319-73684-6.

 

Exhibition and catalogue essay

The Anzac Pair (2017), National Army Museum Te Mata Toa, Waiouru, New Zealand. The Anzac Pair comprised two linked manifestations of the same research investigation: (i) an exhibition, The Anzac Pair, composed of two bronze sculptures: Gallipoli and Birth of a nation; and (ii) an exhibition catalogue essay,  "The Anzac Pair: an allegory of national identity".

 

Installation, performance, sculpture, book essay

Stela (2014), Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr (Military History Museum), Dresden, Germany.

Stela comprised two linked manifestations of the same research investigation, an installation and essay, "Stela - Im Tod sind alle Kameraden". The installation was composed of (i) the stainless steel Cenotaph sculpture (ii) a performance of the biscuit stacking; and (iii) the biscuit ‘memorial’ comprising approximately 20,500 edible World War One soldier-shaped Anzac recipe biscuits.

 

Installation and catalogue essay

Tomb (2013), Historial de la Grande Guerre, Péronne, France
Tomb comprised 2 linked manifestations of the same research investigation, an installation and a catalogue essay, "In memoriam: Le présent et l'absent / In memoriam: The present and the absent". The installation, Tomb, included (i) the design of multiple cookie cutter soldier shapes; (ii) a performance of stacking the biscuits over 20 days; (iii) the biscuit ‘memorial’ in the form of Sir Edwin Lutyens’s Stone of Remembrance (c. 18,600 WWI soldier-shaped biscuits).

 

Commissioned Artwork

Reflections (2012), Chi an Bobel Great Hall, Heartlands, Robinson's Shaft, Pool, Cornwall, United Kingdom (Kingsley Baird & Genevieve Packer)

Commissioned Reflections artwork is a 'memorial' that investigates presence and absence, spirit of place, and cross-cultural memory and identity in relation to people, place, diaspora, cultural preservation and connections (specifically between Cornwall and NZ). After developing the original concept and fundamental design, I invited NZ textile designer, Genevieve Packer, to be co-designer in the detailed resolution of this interdisciplinary (art/craft) work. The work also includes UK craft contributions that reflect local culture.

Professor Baird is a visual artist and writer whose research platform is the investigation—primarily in relation to war—of memory, memorialisation, and remembrance, national identity, mythology, and place. Research is undertaken through the design of commissioned public memorials (NZ Memorial, Canberra, 2001, with Studio of Pacific Architecture; Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, Wellington, 2004; and The Cloak of Peace, Nagasaki, 2006). In addition, he makes artefacts that investigate new conceptual, aesthetic, and material ways of creating memory forms; and publishes textual outputs often integrated with creative works to form synthesized research.
