On Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd August, All Saints Church in Loughborough will be inhabited by multiple contemporary artworks including a sound sculpture streamed from its steeple tower.
This collection of artworks has been drawn from the personal narratives, extraordinary moments, and challenges in the lives of the people who took part.
At its core a celebration of life, the exhibition takes the seemingly ordinary objects and events of the everyday, and elevates them, revealing their imbued emotional value and connecting them to a wider questioning of what it is to experience remembrance, grief, and the passing of time.
The works to be exhibited have been made during the COVID 19 pandemic in response to a collection of workshops commissioned and supported by Charnwood Arts and led by three emerging artists; Jessica Wilson, Pasha Kincaid and Samuel Thompson-Plant who have curated the final show entitled ‘Secret Structures / Hidden Stories.’ The project was written and overseen by Jacqui Gallon, Charnwood Arts Emerging Artist Programme Coordinator.
Lead curator, Samuel Thompson Plant states:
“The work the participants have done represents the possibility of shifting towards new ways of thinking about our personal experience. Many participants expressed that the workshop experience was ‘life changing.’”
