Artist Angela Wright known for her architectural-scale installations in both public and private locations is installing a massive hank of wool weighing 51kg (103lb) and measuring 189 miles, in the 18th century church All Hallows on the Wall in the City of London, in the run-up to Easter.
Entitled 180 MILES : Wool Installation the piece represents both an obstacle and a portal, which will hang as two cascading skeins parted like a doorway and spilling out across the floor in the nave of the church. Visitors will be able to stand close and walk inside the piece, touch and feel its enclosing warmth.
Wallspace is an exhibition venue in All Hallows on the Wall, a church in the heart of the City of London. Its aim is to explore the richness, diversity and risk of the work of contemporary artists interested in the relationship between art and the spiritual. In doing so, Wallspace challenges artists to respond to its unique setting so that the work changes the space and the space sets up a dialogue with the work.
