Ana Maria Pacheco Sculpture: Norwich 2015
16 March - 25 April 2015
Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom
Four Ana Maria Pacheco sculpture exhibitions will run concurrently at The Gallery at NUA, Norwich Cathedral, the keep at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery and at the Catholic Cathedral of St John the Baptist Starting on Tuesday March 17th. The 1985 sculpture, The Banquet, that reflects on abuse or exercise of power, will be installed at NUA. This work, from 1985, dates from the time that the artist was Head of Fine Art at what was then Norwich School of Art. In Norwich Cathedral, Shadows of the Wanderer, 2008 will be installed in the North Transept and remain there for about six months. This work reflects on concerns about migration and the movement of displaced peoples. Eight new polychromed alabaster reliefs will be installed in the Keep at Norwich Castle. And two heads of St John the Baptist, that also reflect on the exercise and abuse of power, will be placed in the Catholic Cathedral. These installations will all enable a new and diverse audience to experience these powerful works in a setting removed from the more conventional gallery. See below for admission times and dates.
