Stations of the Cross project – update

Stations of the whatnow? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out my original blog post here. Don’t have time to read two whole blog posts right now? Well here’s a quick reminder:

Stations of the Cross is an exhibition currently taking place “across 14 iconic locations in London, using works of art to tell the story of the Passion in a new way, for people of different faiths”

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I have been making a short series of videos documenting the progress of artist Michael Takeo Magruder in creating and installing his piece for the 13th Station, Lamentation for the Forsaken (scroll down to ‘Station 13’ to read about it and listen to a podcast where Michael talks about how he conceived and developed the work).

Originally I had planned to create seven videos altogether, but the first four seemed to capture the whole journey so nicely I felt that finishing with the work in situ was a good place to conclude the series .

You don’t have to be a church regular to appreciate the interesting and provocative works of art currently on display, so if you haven’t caught it yet go and take a peek before the exhibition ends on Easter Monday.

Watch the videos (yes I’m going to keep on politely insisting)

Don’t have time to get down to London? Or maybe you’ve checked out the exhibition and are dying to know about that awesome installation at St Stephens? Watch all four videos on the Coexist House website here.
