The Crypt Gallery’s labyrinthine passageways are the setting for an artist-led experimental multi-media exhibition exploring ritual today


Contemporary Art + Ritual is an artist-led experimental exhibition exploring ritual in the broadest sense in today’s society.

Encompassing sound, light, word via dust, wood, thread and more the show reveals ritual to be an expression of human life that is undergoing a process of constant reinvention. The Crypt’s atmospheric brick vaulted corridors will take the viewer on a journey through healing, wishing, weaving, walking, cleaning, carving, folding, painting. A giant gold chain fashioned from bread snakes across the floor of a dark vault, two spectral life-sized figures made of dust hang from the ceiling, a ghostly woman conjures magpies from nowhere. In one chamber metal boxes emit birdsong reminding us of the passage of daily life, and in another hundreds of wishes are beamed out into the darkness.

The show is curated by artists Caro Williams and Deborah Burnstone.

Artists: Rosalind Barker, James S Bond, Deborah Burnstone, Zara Carpenter, Blandine Martin, Elspeth (Billie) Penfold, Zoe Simons-Walker, Hannah Stageman, Sally Tyrie, Nneka Uzoigwe, Jane Walker and Caro Williams
