Metamorphosis by Richard Sweeney

4th April 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2nd May 2017 @ 6:00 pm

A sculptural installation in paper, Richard Sweeney’s striking work will be suspended above Chester Cathedral’s South Transept in a unique composition.

Richard Sweeney’s sculptural work predominantly involves the transformation of the flat sheet of paper into three-dimensional form through hands-on manipulation; folding, cutting and construction.

For Chester Cathedral, Sweeney will present a sculptural installation in paper embodying the idea of Metamorphosis. Several metres of delicate white, hand-pleated paper will appear weightless, suspended within the South Transept in a unique composition, utilising the cathedral space as integral to the realisation of the form of the piece.

The free to enter installation will be accompanied by a series of new large-scale photographic works in addition to a selection of free-standing paper sculptures.
