Description

An exhibition intended to last a day as a backdrop to a performance of Messiaen's La Nativite du Seigneur at Winchester Cathedral had to be kept open for an entire month because of the extraordinary interest it generated among individuals, school groups and numerous others. Sophie Hacker, who works with 'found objects' - discarded pieces of wood, string, metal and skip finds, created nine stunning images depicting aspects of the Incarnation, arranged in an equilateral triangular sequence, and full of spiritual and theological symbolism. The exhibition, which was reviewed by Richard Harries in the "Church Times", went on tour to London, York, Salisbury, Guildford, Paris and various cities in North America. Here the nine images are featured in full colour and a guided tour with commentary is provided by the artist. Meditations by Roly Riem accompany each.
