Salisbury Cathedral presents the work of David Batchelor in a solo exhibition that celebrates colour and light. The exhibition centres around Disco Mécanique (2008), a hanging kaleidoscope of baubles made from thousands of sunglasses found in Brazil that bounces colour and light throughout the cathedral. The exhibition also feautures Candela (2016), a garland of recycled bottles lit by low-energy bulbs that eminate neon, vivid colour. Finally, from his more recent works, Concretos (2012-2022) is displayed - a series of vibrant offcuts and found materials embedded into concrete structures, inspired by Batchelor seeing shards of broken glass embedded atop a wall in Sicily. 


David Batchelor will be giving a talk at Salisbury Cathedral on the 15th of January 2023 where he will be in conversation with art historian, writer and curator Dr Alexandra Loske. Please see booking details here.
