Alison Clark will be our Artist in Residence from the 21 May to the 14 June.

Her specially commissioned piece 'Broken Beauty' will incoporate prints made directly from parts of the Cathedral that have been damged over the centuries through violence.  This quiet installation will be displayed in the Retrochoir from the 3 June together with two existing pieces on the theme of mourning, brokenness and beauty.

This installation is part of a series of events to mark the first anniversary of the London Bridge attack that affected the lives of so many people in Southwark and beyond and included damage to the Cathedral itself.

Two workshops with Alison will take place on 4 and 7 June in the Retrochoir when you are invited to bring a piece of clothing to sit and mend together.  Further details can be found here for the 4 June and here for the 7 June.
