This exhibition at East Gallery, Norwich University of the Arts, and St Laurence’s church (a deconsecrated church on St Benedict’s Street, Norwich) will present two major works by Nathan Coley, Unnamed 2012 and Palace 2015.
Nathan Coley is a Glasgow-based artist whose work examines the nature of belief in our society through a range of media. His gallery based work and interventions in public space seek to enquire into our relationship with sacred and secular architecture, signage and protest, exploring systems of faith and how these are represented and demonstrated.
The two works, Unnamed and Palace, will give audiences the opportunity to experience Coley’s work in both sacred and secular spaces and consider the meeting of contemporary and ancient belief systems in the medieval heart of Norwich.
The exhibition is part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival and supported by East Anglia Art Fund.
Nathan Coley’s work is in collections in the UK and abroad and he has received a number of major commissions for institutions and events worldwide. He was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2007 and is currently working on a major commission for the cathedral of Lund in Sweden.
An exciting events programme will accompany the exhibition, including workshops for schools and evening events, providing the chance to experience the light works at dusk.
