For her latest installation '189 Miles', architectural artist and former Liberty dress designer Angela Wright has made a site specific work at 'All Hallows on the Wall' church, which is well worth a visit.
When Angela first visited All Hallows on the Wall, she noted,
"Visiting the site I was struck by the ceilings creamy softness and flower like patterns. I imagined a work that would connect these characterisitcs with the floor and 'pour' them over it."
"I chose natural wool for its church symbolism and vernacular associations. Woolen garments and blankets are part of our existence from newborn to very old, giving comfort, warmth and protection"
Wool also suggests the journey towards Easter, with associalted themes of spring, redemption, new life and inevitable reference to the paschal (Easter) lamb. The installation offers oppertunity for quiet and contemplation.
'189 Miles' is open Tuesday-Friday 12-6 saturday 11-4 and special Easter openings: Friday, saturday, Sunday and Monday 11-4
Meet Angela Wright on Thursday 2nd April 2009, open until 9pm as part of Timeout First Thursdays.
