This February, artist Maggie Hall will be showing new video and photographic work in the Cathedral’s south aisle. Entry is free.
Maggie says, “Much of my work intends to capture a sense of creative energy and movement. I use a variety of imagery and objects within my artwork which connect to the immediate environment, for example the domestic space, nature and people. My work concerns process, merging the initial creation of the work with the final product.”
For this exhibition Maggie has created several video works, one of which explores areas of Carlisle. The processes of creating work both reveals and hides, incorporating a sense of movement and journey. This work depicts different environments and sounds within Carlisle, showing some of the makeup, overlap and energy of the city. Also included is a photographic series related to water.
Maggie says, “I am interested to explore how the lens or context of the Cathedral space could change the meaning of the work.”
During half-term week (17 to 23 February) visitors will also be able to spark their own creativity wandering around the Cathedral with our sketchbooks. This is a free activity so pop in and get creative, be inspired by the surroundings and Maggie’s exhibition.
The exhibition is open daily and there is no entry charge.
Please leave a donation to support the Cathedral if you are able.
