Dark Water, Burning World

Dark water

On Monday 12 March 2018 (from 9-1pm) I’ll be publicly installing Dark Water, Burning World (similar to the one currently at the British Museum’s Living with God but with 1,000 boats this time) on the floor of King’s College Chapel, Cambridge.  

With an evening of  Liturgy, music and poetry, (please see poster above). 

The installation will remain in Chapel until March 15th – the 7th anniversary of the Syrian uprising –
I will publicly de-install it by midday, and will then be replaced by seven candles at the Chapel altar to mark 7 years and to remember all who were lost and deeply scarred by the Syrian conflict.

Look forward to sharing this very special event with  you.

Yours truly
