Mary, the second permanent large-scale video installation by Bill Viola for St Paul's Cathedral is inaugurated in the North Quire aisle of Christopher Wren's magnificent cathedral on 8th September 2016, coinciding with the Feast of Mary. Seen as a companion piece to Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water), in the South Quire Aisle of the cathedral since 2014, these two installations symbolise some of the profound mysteries of human existence - one is concerned with birth, the other with death.

 

About St Paul's Cathedral

Being the cathedral of the capital city, St Paul's is officially the spiritual home of Great Britain. The funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill were conducted inside the church's fortress-like walls, as was the elaborate fairy-tale wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
