Re-membering the experience of being in worship, 2021

Sinking Like a Stone: An Exhibition

Completed through the experience of worshipping in isolation in 2020-21 this new exhibition is explores how our collective experience of worship has been altered and shaped by our disembodied times. It is therefore frustratingly fitting that the timing of this exhibition, scheduled to open in August, is somewhat uncertain as we find ourselves physically separated from one another…again! As we begin to gather again in different ways, the artworks themselves – and the stories they invite – will offer a gentle invitation to re-member the experience of being in worship alongside other people in a time that necessitates the physical separation of our bodies. I look forward to hanging this work @ Whitley College and exploring the ideas and conversations that will surely emerge.
