On Isolation, an exhibition at the Leper Chapel

Hello! I'd like to share this place with you...

Leper chapel

Even though put to the side and isolated,
It holds intact, with walls rich, filled with forgotten stories.

And a week from today...
Some of my sculptures and installations,
alongside four other extremely talented artists,
will share the walls of this beautiful old chapel.

"The Leper Chapel lies on the east side of the city,
off Newmarket Road just after crossing over
the railway line at Barnwell Junction.
It is probably the oldest surviving building
in Cambridge, dating from about 1125,
during the reign of Henry I."

We will be exploring "Isolation",
in an exhibition about Art/ Health and Medicine.

    • Truly beautiful! I’m incredibly lucky to be able to spend a full week within these walls as we set up for the exhibition.

  2. Beautiful collection of images that really give you an understanding of this isolated chapel. The textures in the door shot are so detailed.

    • Thank you! I particularly like the the woven strings of web on the windows. Have you been to the Leper chapel in your Cambridge days?

      • Sadly no I have not been to the chapel but when I am up that way to visit my parents I am sure that I will take a look around. Thanks for sharing your photos and once again good luck with the exhibition

  4. What a wonderful and historically honoured space to show your art. Considering its past the Isolation theme is very appropriate. I hope the exhibition and its architectural shelter is visited and appreciated by many…
