Monday 17th May - Thursday 24th June 2021
Following postponement in 2020 we are thrilled that Nicola Moody can exhibit with us this year!
Funded by Arts Council England and working in collaboration with Azalea Luton (www.azalea.org.uk). Nicola ran a series of workshops with women from Azalea, a charity that works with women caught in commercial sexual exploitation. She created 5 woven hangings that use the language of textiles to communicate 5 different narratives. The textile work is a literal manifestation of unraveling, fraying, knotting, the appearance of holes, and different methods of repair. In so doing the language of textiles acts as a metaphor to express 5 personal histories. A film about the project, a community weave, and guidance booklets are exhibited alongside the 5 woven hangings.
Entry into the exhibition is free of charge and the work is accessible during Cathedral opening times. We ask that anyone visiting the Cathedral follows the current government guidelines, avoid mixing with people from other households, be particularly careful about social distancing, and wear a face covering if they are able to. Visitors should provide contact details for Track & Trace - check in with the NHS app as you arrive or fill in a form at the door.
