Salisbury Cathedral, 800th Anniversary Spirit and Endeavour Exhibition
Time and Place, 2020
800th anniversary exhibition, North Porch, Salisbury Cathedral
20 iconic and important pieces of contemporary art by notable artists such as Henry Moore and Grayson Perry, exhibited both inside and outside the Cathedral. These works have been especially chosen to illustrate the changes in thought and creativity over the past 8 centuries and to honour the achievements of the ordinary people who built a city and a cathedral of such distinction.
The works Munro has chosen to create in the Alcoves of the North Porch of Salisbury cathedral are interior and exterior portraits of the cathedral. The filmic data is taken from a compilation of 360 degree iPhone panoramas photographed in the 800th anniversary year of the cathedral, abstracted into pixels, which are then recomposed. The process correlates to Munro’s awareness that his interpretation of experience is perpetually in a state of flux.
As a series, Time and Place artworks will continue to evolve; like time itself, it is always a work-in-progress.
