A group show by four artists including Sara Shamma, Paul Baily, Jack Chesterman and a visual projection collective. Entry is free during regular opening hours.We are very fortunate to be able to include Syrian artist Sara Shamma, whose dynamic portraiture is internationally acclaimed. Sara will be producing portraits of St Wilfrid and his contemporaries to bring them to life over 1,300 years after they trod this earth.Jack Chesterman has created three paintings depicting elements of Wilfrid’s life, which are housed in the Anglo-Saxon crypt. Music will stitch the painting and projection together, creating an evocative and immersive experience in the oldest structure of any English Cathedral in use today.Our poet, Olivia Mulligan, or Liv as she is known, was born and bred in North Yorkshire. Olivia has composed three new poems for the project, each accompanying one of Sara’s portraits.
