Imagining the Crucifixion

Venue: Lichfield Cathedral

'Imagining the Crucifixion' is the first part of a two-year creative journey that explores a contemporary interpretation of Christ's journey to the Cross. In working closely with the Dean of Lichfield, Artist-in-Residence Peter Walker offers a rare opportunity to see behind the artist's studio wall.

The collection of sketches, studies, original painting, sculpture and digital artwork, offers the opportunity to experience and explore profound human moments shoulder to shoulder with the artist. It is also, and primarily, an opportunity for every person who visits to think and imagine how they would see and tell the story and how Jesus’s story resonates with times of sadness, darkness, pain and loss in our lives. “This exposition of the Stations of the Cross presents an opportunity for all of us to bring the most difficult human experiences into dialogue with the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. The Stations help us see the depths of God’s love for the world: how Christ absorbs human hatred and evil, bearing its colossal weight, to give us a new birth in his peace and love.” The Very Revd Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield 'Imagining the Crucifixion' is open until 2 April.
