A unique art installation inviting people to walk through a 10-metre wave of 3,000 fish has been created in Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry as part of the Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure exhibition at the Cathedral.
The visit of the Natural History Museum’s Dippy the Diplodocus cast to Norwich Cathedral aims to spark conversations about our planet and how we can protect it for the future, and Norfolk-based artist Mark Reed’s stunning installation Your Waves Go Over Me puts the spotlight on the importance of water through the ages, from the time of dinosaurs right through to the modern day and beyond.
Ahead of seeing Dippy the dinosaur in the Nave, visitors to the Cathedral are invited to explore Mr Reed’s stunning wave of shimmering metal fish, each one individually made in Mr Reed’s studio in Ashill, near Thetford.
A team of volunteers, including students from Norwich University of the Arts, spent a week carefully weaving the wave of iridescent fish together in the Hostry, and the result is a spectacular work of art with a serious message.
