April-October 2019: Sacred and/or Secular
Sacred and/or Secular reflects on the remarkable history of one small church in Norwich, and the place of redundant churches in our urban landscapes.
The HERILIGION project commissioned five artists to respond to St Peter Hungate’s history as a heritage building with a site-specific installation: Colleen O’Brien (Through the Ear, 26 April-27 May), Judith Quax (Flintspiration, 30 May-14 July), Mira Calix (Sihlabelela, 16 July-26 August) and Laura Bygrave and Alida Kuzemczak-Sayer (CCCC, 30 August-21 October). Their works were shown alongside an archival exhibition curated by Clare Haynes, Senior Research Associate at UEA.
