|Detail from Shadows Of The Wanderer|
Today we used the efficient Park and Ride from Norwich airport to visit the city. I had heard of the cathedral and castle before, but don't think I've ever been there, and Dave hadn't visited for maybe twenty years so we've both been looking forward to this. Checking the tourist office website beforehand, Dave learned that some of the sculptor, Ana Pacheco's work is being exhibited in Norwich at the moment. Unfortunately we had missed one piece by two days, but did get to see Shadows Of The Wanderer (2008) in Norwich Cathedral. This multi-piece work is incredible to see and I thought it was particularly evocative shown within the religious setting. Each person is carved in detail from a single piece of wood. The folds of their cloaks and hairstyles must have taken ages, and that's without trying to understand how Pacheco has created such expressive faces. Amazing art!
