Reflect on the meaning of reflection at city exhibition
A MAJOR exhibition featuring installations of sculpture, painting, light, sound and music is to be held at Peterborough Cathedral.
Reflection: Looking Beneath the Surface is a collaboration between the Cathedral and artist Susan Haire, who has more than 20 solo shows to her credit, and New Yorkbased composer Stephen Dydo.
Among the installations at the exhibition will be thousands of bottles from the London Marathon made into festoons spanning the nave, shimmering pennants hanging all the way up the Cathedral’s 30-metre tower and another featuring 600 mirrored sunglasses lenses.
The aim is to consider reflection in all its meanings.
A music festival with a full programme of concerts involving live and recorded music will also be included as part of the exhibition.
Director of Peterborough Cathedral Music Association Andrew Reid said: “The Cathedral is delighted to be presenting this event, which we are certain will be memorable for local people and visitors from further afield.”
The main exhibition and many of the individual events as part of the programme will be free.
It runs from Saturday, May 19 to Sunday, June 24.
