This year’s Lent art installation is called Footfall and is composed of over 15 metres of printed cloth and embroidery, descending from the top of the Reredos to the altar floor below

The artist Alison Clark has made prints from footfall in the Cathedral by capturing the worn surfaces of monumental stones in the Retrochoir. These prints are an echo of pilgrims who have come to worship over the centuries.  The artwork is  supported by Westhill Endowment (www.westhillendowment.org) and a private donor.

Alison was artist in residence here in 2018. Six of her prints from the Broken Beauty residency are now on display in the Garry Weston library in the Cathedral.
