Event description

Description

Artist duo Webb-Ellis unveil their new installation ‘An Empty Vessel’ under the gothic arches of the Nunnery Gallery. Revealing the experience of the pilgrimage Webb-Ellis led to an ancient well in nearby Valentine’s Park in September, the immersive installation will take the viewer on a journey exploring the hidden potential of the ordinary, surrounded by sacred water vessels collected by the ‘pilgrims’ who took part. Accompanied by music and shots shared with a hallowed vessel, this will be a rare gathering exploring shared place, memory and a journey through east London.

Inspired by Susan Hiller’s on-going Homage to Joseph Beuys series, which collects water from sacred or once-sacred sites around the world, the exhibition will also showcase a new cabinet from Hiller – a rare opportunity to see some of her recently collected holy water samples.

Artists Webb-Ellis will be present throughout the evening. This event follows the Nunnery Gallery’s winning of Museum at Night’s Connect competition.

The event is part of Visions in the Nunnery.
