Film and Video Umbrella showcases recent works by acclaimed film and video artists at historic church sites across England.


A Light Shines in the Darkness is a new touring exhibition in which six artists’ films will travel to churches and cathedrals around the country, re-illuminating inspiring public spaces and prompting viewers to see the locations in which the works are sited in a different light.

The staging at St Werburgh's Church, Derby will exhibit LEAP after The Great Ecstasy by Melanie Manchot, Uriel by Alexander & Susan Maris, Stable by Kathleen Herbert and Still Point by Suki Chan.

A project by Film and Video Umbrella in partnership with The Churches Conservation Trust and curator, Paul Bayley. Supported by Arts Council England.
