Building Lent

Angela Wright

From Tami

While in London I stumbled upon the beautiful little Southwark Cathedral.  Inside I found a stunning art installation by Angela Wright.  250 miles of wool from 40 different countries draped from high on the altar.  Commissioned by the Cathedral as a temporary installation for Lent, it seemed mixing realities (modern art/sanctity of the medieval church) and yet right at home on the altar.  Entitled “Forty Days” – her statement reads in part…”Is it the tears that were shed, the cloth that wiped his brow, the sheet they wound around him…or something more?”
