You are invited to visit St. Andrew’s Church to experience this medieval church in intriguing new ways.
St. Andrew’s will play host to a collection of new digital artworks and performances that explore the church’s spatial character, history, and relationship to local life. Multiple artworks will be presented together, creating an immersive world within the building. Visitors are invited to see, hear and understand the church differently through historical speculations, digital storytelling and contemporary artistic responses.
The exhibition will be open from 10.00, with public performances from 19.30-21.00.
Tickets are not required for the exhibition, but please register to attend the performance so that we can plan seating and refreshments.
Artists, designers, and researchers from Newcastle, York and Liverpool have been working in and around the church, and with the local community to sensitively develop new pieces of creative work using sound, light and a variety of different technologies and techniques.
Artworks include the use of light projections, sound installations, photography, illustration, digital interventions and other interactive elements. Performances include vocalisations of medieval plainsong by Magnus Williamson, sonic architectural explorations by Tim Shaw and John Bowers, and audio-visual projections from Simon Bowen and Draw & Code.
