On exhibitions gone by and important decisions

Leper Chapel, Cambridge

Hi! It's been a incredibly busy week!

We arranged and rearranged meticulously,
in preparation for and exhibition.
Waiting eagerly for friends and guests to arrive,
at old chapel doorways with a booklet in hand,
and a glass in another.
Discussed our work with interested minds
and raised our glasses to a well received show.

We then had picnics in clove covered fields,
and shared food under sunny, cloudless skies.
We sipped on elderflower, 
while we spoke of times now past
and of days to come or trips to follow.  

We spoke of our background, our heritage, 
of food that adorned our tables as we grew.
We made plans to meet again soon
and made important decisions on what we would eat next.

  2. Thanks for the wonderful shots inside the chapel – interesting to me that you couldn’t display the art by hanging on the walls so needed to plan other ways. Any chance that you could describe the art shown? – looks fascinatingly mysterious from the photos – is your piece shown? Congratulations – from your poetic words the show sounds successful on every level…

    • Hi John, sorry its taken too long… No excuse! My work is about resilience, renewal, restoration and recovery. HERE is a little more if you are interested.

      • No worries Stella – blogging is timeless. Thanks for the link – all your work is stunning and the installation views gave me a better understanding of the chapel show. Are the medication slips and ampoules for leprosy and if so how did you obtain them?

      • Hi John, thank you, I’m very honored! My installation is a celebration of my ongoing battle with pulmonary hypertension, so at one point these where my daily bread.

      • Ah, now I understand – my assumption was to do with the connection of the Chapel with leprosy. I wish you well in your battle to overcome your health problems…
