Video Exhibition

VANISHING POINT: WHERE SPECIES MEET
25 July to 25 August  |  Daily, 0730 – 1830  | Free
Vanishing Point is a performance-based video installation by artist team Snæbjörnsdóttir/ Wilson, who have a multidisciplinary, international practice. Their projects use art as a tool of disruption and mediation, to prompt new ecological perspectives in the face of growing environmental crisis. This three-screen film installation follows a ritualistic sharing of food – a ‘breaking of bread’ between species, at a bespoke table. The triptych is suspended centrally over and in front of the Cathedral’s High Altar. The installation provides a platform for a series of related public events and discussion of issues raised by the work, with contributions by poets, writers, ecologists and musicians.
