Contemporary art at Lindisfarne Castle with Liz Gre
For 2024 / 25 we are excited to be working with contemporary artist and composer, Liz Gre, who will explore the spirit of Lindisfarne Castle through a sound and sculptural installation.
Liz Gre will present an installation inspired by the voices of Holy Island, placed in-situ as an interactive sound and light sculpture in the Upper Gallery at Lindisfarne Castle.
The sculpture will use weathered raw materials – such as salt, glass, limestone, sand & wind, and visitors will be invited to engage with the piece physically, exploring cacophony, non-linear time, embodiment of place, co-existing memory and imagination.
"Upon visiting Lindisfarne, I was immediately overwhelmed by the multitude of voices echoing in the place. The loud-quiet voice of the expansive sky at play with the tide and the North Sea; the still enwrapping voice of the wind as it curled around blades of grass and stone and caressed, kissed, coldly slapped my skin; the legacied voices of Holy Islanders humming like bees as we passed through the causeway; the bellowing murmurs of domestic memory superimposed upon spiritual memory held within the realised imagination of place created"
The installation will use the spaces inside the building to tell a series of stories, enabling visitors to experience the castle through the eyes of those who’ve occupied it throughout its existence – past, present and future.
