Under an Equal Sky at Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral will play home to an exhibition of large-scale glass installations by Baldwin & Guggisberg.

Visit website

From 26 May to 11 November 2018, Canterbury Cathedral will be home to an important exhibition of large-scale glass installations by international artists Baldwin & Guggisberg. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Under an Equal Sky will take the visitor on a journey that begins with 100 glass amphorae suspended in the shape of a ship and ends with a glass wall of multi-coloured vessels.

The context of Canterbury Cathedral – itself a place of refuge across the centuries – underpins the exhibition’s intent to reflect the fragile nature of humanity, with the symbolism of boats and empty vessels bringing to mind sadly familiar images of our times: refugees packed precariously into boats, fleeing for their lives and migrants seeking new horizons.
