Flesh Grass Fresh Glass

2016 - 18th April 16
Shandy Hall Gallery

General event

"On the south wall in the chancel of the Church of St Michael, Coxwold, is the memorial tomb of Thomas,1st Viscount Fauconberg, and his wife Barbara Cholmeley erected in 1618.
The couple, carved in stone, are shown kneeling in silent prayer.
Below is an inscription that commemorates Thomas’ love for Barbara:
‘Omnis homo bulla, omnis caro faenum’ which translates:
 ‘Every man is a bubble all flesh is grass’

The exhibition in the gallery at Shandy Hall takes this phrase as inspiration for a creative writing project and we have written and produced a series of neon lights and photographed them in wild locations across the North York Moors. 

The exhibition celebrates the imagined, the magical, the serendipitous and the ephemeral."
