This Lent, Angela Wright will be the artist-in-residence at St Peter De Beauvoir (February 14th – March 31st). Angela and participants will be working to create a ‘Memory Installation’, made up of objects that evoke memories of the past. Everyone is invited to donate a small object to what promises to be a striking piece of collaborative work.
‘Memory’ will consist of a vast number of memory-evoking objects, suspended from an undulating wire mesh, which will be attached to the long wooden rails on the walls of the side aisles in St Peter’s. This will enable the objects to be seen close-up as they nestle in the mesh. Textiles will be woven through the mesh in a stream of Lenten/Easter colours flowing amidst the objects.
On Sunday, January 21st at 11.30am (just after church), there will be the opportunity to meet Angela, see a presentation of her past art work and discuss the ‘Memory’ installation for St Peter’s. This is open to all – you do not need to be a regular at St Peter’s to join in this artistic adventure!
Angela will also hold a series of MEMORY WORKSHOPS for those with Dementia and their carers, but open to all. The workshops will involve handling objects, drawing, singing, theatre, poetry, sounds, and smell.
Saturday 24th February 12-3pm; Friday 2nd March 12-3pm; Saturday 10th March 12-3pm; Friday 16th March 12-3pm.
