Doubt – Southwark Cathedral Art Installation

Published on 20th February 2018

Doubt is the latest in Southwark Cathedral’s series of Lent installations. Each year an artist is invited to provide an existing work or site specific piece to act as a focus for contemplation and reflection during Lent. Conceived by internationally renowned artist Susie MacMurray, this year’s piece conveys Doubt through the connections of the weight of darkness and uncertainty suspended from above.  It stems from a conversation Susie had with a soldier who had served in Afghanistan at the time she was installing Cloud in The Great Hall in Winchester, 2014.  The soldier spoke about how all the time he was in the war zone he felt a dark weight hovering behind his neck.  It made Susie think of 40 days and 40 nights.
