Commission - Mixed Medium

Grace Ndiritu - The Healing Pavilion

Tue-Wed: 10-6pm; Thu: 10-8pm (Late Opening); Fri-Sun: 10-6pm

‘The Healing Pavilion’ is a new art commission by British-Kenyan visual artist Grace Ndiritu. It radically reimagines what textiles and architecture can do in a museum burdened by colonial history. It is deeply connected to Ndiritu’s ongoing body of work, ‘Healing The Museum’.

The installation consists of two tapestries within a site-specific structure, inspired by Zen Buddhist temples in Japan. It is designed to re-activate the museum as a space to encounter, contemplate, ask questions, exchange, listen, share and meditate.

‘The Healing Pavilion’ is curated by Janice Li and Emily Sargent.
