In the evocative setting of the Crypt Gallery, six artists will present a series of works exploring the beauty and mystery of the human form. 557 Shadows combines classical craftsmanship with modern interpretation to give unique views of the body in life and death that question what it means to be human, with the title referencing the role of the Crypt as a final resting place and spiritual gateway for 557 people. Working in a range of media, including stone carving, drawing, glass sculpture and photography, the artists explore the perception of the body in today's society and the essence of human form across boundaries of gender, ethnicity and sexuality. The artists featured in this exhibition combine their creative practice with a range of professions associated with the body and include an anatomist, psychologist, medical illustrator and architectural stone carver.
