wonder : wander – Commissioned by Durham Council

WONDER WANDER – INSTALLATION

wonder : wander was commissioned by Durham County Council for their Gala Gallery in Durham. It was a collaborative exhibition with artist Chris Plant. 

Exhibition text:

wonder : wander responds to Durham’s 2020 celebration of The Year of Pilgrimage and the Northern Saints by creating a contemporary sanctuary in the city.

Together with participants from mental health charity RT Projects, artists Chris Plant and Alice Highet spent time walking along parts of the pilgrim ways, that end at Durham City’s sanctuary, Durham Cathedral. As they wandered, they took time to watch, listen and find moments of wonder in their surrounding, making videos and sound recordings using smart-phones; documenting their own experiences of walking the pilgrims way. From these recordings, the artists have created an atmospheric and ethereal, multi-sensory, audio-visual installation. 

wonder : wander invites people to step outside the fast pace of everyday life, slow down and find their own sanctuary.
