Our annual Lent art installation is by internationally renowned artist Susie MacMurray
Susie conceived the piece Doubt through the connections of the weight of darkness and uncertainty suspended from above.
It stems from a conversation Susie had with a soldier who had served in Afghanistan at the time that she was installing her piece Cloud in the Great Hall, Winchester in 2014. They talked about PTSD and the effects that the pressure of extended periods of tension and anxiety have on the mind. The soldier spoke about how all the time he was in the war zone he felt a dark weight hovering behind his neck. It made Susie think fo 40 days and 40 nights.
