This is a past exhibition which ran from 8 August 2015 to 10 January 2016.
From a tiny pebble caught in a terrazzo floor, to the infinite enormity of the cosmos, acclaimed Welsh artist Bedwyr Williams invites you on a journey through his extraordinary installation, The Starry Messenger. Sound and light guide you through amateur space exploration, and invite you experience life as a chunk of quartz. First shown at the Venice Biennale in 2013, The Starry Messenger has been reconfigured especially for the Whitworth to include new work by Williams, and an eclectic selection of drawings and wallpaper drawn from the Whitworth’s collection. Co-curated by Oriel Davies and MOSTYN, commissioned by the Arts Council of Wales. Tour supported by the Colwinston Charitable Trust.
