Drawing in the Archive: Norwich’s Medieval Churches 1700 – 2017
The exhibition is now closed – thanks to everyone who helped make it a success!
New! Look at and listen to Emil Dauncey’s ‘Norwich Churches Spherical Film’ – sound and vision at St Peter Southgate in 2017.
A 360 degree film produced by Emil Dauncey @DaunceyEmil and Joe Sinclair in conjunction with our project and was used as part of a workshop which ran during the exhibition @NorfolkRO. The film features the ruins of St Peter Southgate, and you can turn around 360 degrees in each viewing point as the film plays by using your mouse to swing around the scene.
To view the 4 minute film on YouTube just click here: Spherical Film
Copies of the Drawing in the Archive catalogue are available from City Bookshop, Norwich
Based on new research, this exhibition explores the rich visual record of Norwich’s medieval parish churches. Since 1700, artists, antiquarians and archaeologists have drawn the City’s churches in diverse ways. The remarkable archive that they have left reveals information about the churches that would otherwise be lost and encourages us to look again, and look differently, at these familiar landmarks.
