Memory Installation: Art Preview
24th April 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tuesday April 24th
All are welcome to attend a preview of the new art installation at St Peter De Beauvoir. Artist-in-Residence Angela Wright has created an extraordinary artwork in the main church, a ‘river of memories’, using donated objects that evoke reminiscences. The preview evening will include Angela Wright in conversation with Rev’d Julia Porter-Pryce.
For the artist, creating an installation at St Peter’s has been a special experience:
“St Peter’s became a studio where a lot of thinking took place, a certain amount of worrying as well as the pleasure of seeing something develop. When I looked across the church to the two outer walls I could see the sunlight bouncing off the reflective objects. If I looked up at the stained glass windows I could see a relationship with the colours of the objects on the wall. I became familiar with regular visitors who came in to pray or take time out from the world outside. I met members of the congregation and the community through the workshops I ran. I was very grateful to have the time and the space to work and think things through which is very much part of a residency. It has been a very special experience.”
