Two Twisted by David Mach

April 12 @ 9:00 am - May 20 @ 5:00 pm

Two Twisted by David Mach

David Mach RA returns to Chester Cathedral once again with a brand new installation entitled Two Twisted.

Known for creating art on an often epic scale, Mach will not disappoint with raw materials which include sea containers, cars, steel girders and multiple tonnes of newsprint.

“We’ll bring the outside world into the cathedral and activate it in a different way, layering the material rhythmically in a performance that almost becomes like a dance repeating again and again the action that sees the work to existence.”

Former Turner Prize nominee Mach, is one of Britain’s leading sculptors and one of the most important names in international contemporary art. He has previously displayed twice at the cathedral including the shocking Golgotha trilogy and, as part of the 2017 ARK exhibition, Mach created Vessel, a carved-out vase encrusted with two million nails.

This event is part of ‘waves’ – our extraordinary year of special events centred around the theme of water.

Open normal cathedral hours.

Free entry – donations welcome

Two Twisted is sponsored by The Megan Gwynne-Jones Charitable Foundation.
and supported by Cleveland Containers and Recycling UK.
