In celebration of the 800th anniversary of the laying of its foundation stones, Salisbury Cathedral presents the exhibition Celebrating 800 years of Spirit and Endeavour. Conrad Shawcross’s monumental sculpture Formation I (The Dappled Light of the Sun) is featured as part of a series of sculptures on the grounds of the cathedral.
A virtual version of the exhibition has just been launched, allowing access while the cathedral is temporarily closed to the public. Take a virtual tour of the exhibition, through the grounds and the interior of the cathedral, and read a digital copy of the catalogue here.
Grayson Perry’s Death of a Working Hero tapestry is also on view, alongside works by artists including Antony Gormley, Shirazeh Houshiary, Henry Moore, and Mark Wallinger. Exhibition organised by Jacquiline Creswell.
