Time & Location
02 Aug, 09:00 – 01 Sept, 18:00
St Mary's Cathedral, Palmerston Pl, Edinburgh EH12 5AW, UK
The Way of Christa is a series of 9 bronze sculptures by Caroline Mackenzie, depicting the humanity of women. The figures convey the woman on a journey, experiencing different states of her humanity. While secular and religious art often shows edited versions of what it really means to be human as a woman, this series aims to show a fuller picture, and, with her personal reference as a Christian, her understanding of being made in the image of God. It is hoped that these sculptures will continue to provide a tangible focus for reflection and discussion, which will enable insightful understanding of what it means for us all to be human in community with each other. In partnership with Just Festival.
Hours: this exhibition is open from 8am-6pm on weekdays, and 8am-5pm on weekends, in August. This exhibition may close early for concerts/events. Please phone to check opening times for a particular day.
After graduating from St Martin's School of Art London, I travelled to India where I lived for 12 years - for 6 in a Christian Art Ashram and for 6 in a Hindu temple town. I have held exhibitions and undertaken commissions for the Church and private individuals both in India and Europe. I now live and work in Leiston, Suffolk UK. www.carolinemackenzie.co.uk
