Exploring the interpretation of the Project
April 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Leaves of Southwell Project Presents: Just Look! a talk by Helen Eger and Canon Nigel Coates.
If the best art is that which awakens the soul, there is much to be said for being woken up gently and not being given too much information too soon. This talk describes the interpretation strategy developed by Studio Eger that is minimal in intervention, but which seeks none the less to deepen appreciation for the the Leaves of Southwell as ‘one of the glories of Europe.’
