Spectacular Light Installation at Gloucester Cathedral

Light Installation at Gloucester Cathedral

Gloucester Cathedral hosts immersive artwork to recognise Gloucestershire refugees throughout history.
The exhibition titled ‘Where There is Light’ marks the culmination of events celebrating 20 years of Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (GARAS) and features artwork by Gloucestershire based digital arts group, Squidsoup.

Working in partnership with the Everyman Theatre Writers Lab, The Music Works and Gloucester Cathedral, the exhibition will provide a truly poignant, immersive sensory experience to visitors. It aims to raise awareness of the crucial work GARAS does to support asylum seekers and refugees across the County.
A specially designed soundscape created by the Everyman Writers Lab and The Music Works, gives an audio narrative featuring stories of people from various countries who are now living in Gloucester and who have used the services that GARAS offers.
Squidsoup installations have featured at galleries, music and light festivals all over the world and are currently displaying in Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Arizona and Millennium Square Bristol. Artist and Founder Anthony Rowe is delighted to have the artwork exhibited locally.

Visitors to ‘Where There is Light’ will see the Lady Chapel transformed into an environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide. Visitors become part of the artwork as the light and sound changes around them.

Canon Richard Mitchell, Gloucester Cathedral said “The Cathedral welcomes this exhibition that allows us to explore the world of music and light, real and virtual realms during Epiphany. It echoes the Christian themes of different elements coming together to reveal something new for each of us.”

‘Where There Is Light’ will take up residence in the Lady Chapel at Gloucester Cathedral from Thursday 16 January until Sunday 23 February.  Please check the Gloucester Cathedral website  for the daily opening times of ‘Where There is Light’.
