Showing as part of Altered Festival ' when will our fields be seen, our church bells heard?' is a sound and video installation in All Saint's church, Grasby that is inspired by the poems of Charles Tennyson Turner.

About

Artists Lynn Dennison and Gen Doy sound and video installation, orginally commissioned for St Peter and St Paul's Caistor, and now to be shown at All Saint's in Grasby, reveals the beauty of Lincolnshire’s rural landscape through a unique series of windows projected onto the walls of the historic building.

 ‘When will our fields be seen, our church bells heard?’ is inspired by the poems of Charles Tennyson Turner. The elder brother of Alfred Lord Tennyson, he was  priest of Grasby, All Saints during the 19th century. His celebrated poem, Sunrise, highlights how shadows cast through a window can inspire thoughts of beauty; a notion that will be encompassed by ‘When will our fields be seen, our church bells heard?’

Altered Festival 2015 marks the conclusion of Altered: Contemporary Art in Ancient Churches – a pioneering initiative masterminded by partners the University of Lincoln, the Diocese of Lincoln and artsNK – which has for years challenged audiences to view historic church buildings in innovative ways through new artworks.
