Some information posted on the Art and Sacred Places website about FORMA’s recent performance at Winchester Cathedral:
” Comments: “The performance had a hypnotic effect – very powerful – beautiful movements. It reminded me of Anish Kapoor’s work” “A really great experience.” “A wonderful atmosphere of stillness.”
Artwork: The ‘Companion of Space’ was created especially for Winchester Cathedral in response to both the years of hard work and dedication that people have put into its construction and to the rhythm and symbolism of the ceremonies that happen in the intimacy of the Quire. Four women represented four directions: connected at the centre where their four paths crossed. In that centre was a circular mirror which reflected the interior of the Quire, revering the sacred space. The four performers serenely moved: tilting and altering the reflection in the mirror, which in turn cast a gentle ellipse of reflected light around the tranquil space. “
