Walcot Chapel

Bath Spa, United Kingdom

Walcott Chapel was the venue for Anthony Key: Walcot Chapel, Bath, 24 September - 19 October 2002.  Extracts from the introduction to the accompanying catalogue, as follows: “This new exhibition by Key takes place within the almost astonishing architectural gem which is Walcot Chapel, in the centre of Bath. Built in the mid 19th century, Walcot Chapel is now a deconsecrated building, stripped of its furniture but maintaining a wonderful and intimate whitewashed space that provides an ideal environment for Key to create this installation. This is an ambitious work, involving the making of large numbers of ‘bricks’. The work in question, a Buddha made (like Great Wall before it) from bricks cast from tin foil containers, mirrors and animates a range of concerns and reference points. Not least amongst these reference points is the architectural grandeur and pretensions of “the Georgian City“ itself.”
