Sarah Leavesley: Mosaic of Modern Worcestershire exhibition
Explore Sarah Leavesley’s Mosaic of Modern Worcestershire online exhibition.
This project is the second to be shared as part of our From the Art Gallery with Love project. ‘Mosaic of Modern Worcestershire’ is inspired by one of the best known artworks in Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum’s collection, John Harris the Younger’s A Prospect of Worcester from the East (c.1750). Over the course of her project, Sarah produced a poem with accompanying film, and reimagined the 18th century painting using small photographic tiles of modern Worcester, which you can explore on the exhibition page below.
The artist worked on the project during the 2020 lockdown which restricted residents to their homes and local streets. 2020 also marks the three-hundred-year anniversary of Harris’s birth.
