Still Point - Suki Chan5. Oct - 3. Nov 12 / ended Sidney Cooper Gallery
Tue-Fri 10.30-5 Sat 11.30-5
Suki Chan's new work, Still Point, is a film installation about sacred spaces and places of pilgrimage
"Whilst filming in sacred sites in Jerusalem, I was struck by how some parts of the city have two names, one in Hebrew, and the other in Arabic. How one population can 'unsee' another group. How one part of the city is closed off to another group - by borders which are sometimes physical and sometimes psychological."
Still Point transports the audience from the site of humble wooden structures offering refuge along Pilgrims' Way in Northumerland, to contested sacred sites in Jerusalem, and the interior spaces of abandoned Syrian Villages in the Golan Heights.
