Robert Davies Exhibition – Lumen

We are delighted to be hosting artist Robert Davies in January and February, who will be presenting three films in the medieval surroundings of Wells Cathedral – one in the Chapter House, one on the steps leading to the Chapter House and a third film in the Corpus Christi Chapel.

In an unprecedented collaboration between the artist and the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral, the exhibition will open on the feast of the Epiphany, 6th January, and will close on Candlemas, 2nd February 2020. Wells Cathedral has been a place of worship, sanctuary and spiritual contemplation for close on 1000 years, Davies’ three films are wholly in keeping with this tradition, addressing as they do themes of birth and mortality, place and memory. Their situation within the Cathedral will enhance their power and at the same time and in differing ways, will be conducive to meditation and self-reflection.

Launch event

If you would like to view the three films in the presence of the artist, and to discuss them with him, then you are more than welcome to come to the launch event for the exhibition in the North Transept of the Cathedral on Tuesday 7 January at 6.30pm. A free glass of wine will be provided!
