The Temple of a Thousand Bells by Laura Belem at York St. Mary’s
Open daily 25 May – 4 November, York St Mary’s, York, YO1 9RN http://www.yorkstmarys.org.uk
This installation is composed of a thousand cast glass bells and a specially composed polyphonic sound piece, creating a 3-D effect to the sound of a narrated story.
The story is a free adaptation of an ancient legend about a temple of a thousand bells that was built on an island.
Over the centuries, the island sank into the ocean, and with it, the temple. As the story unfolds, it reveals the attempts of a sailor to hear the music of those bells.
The mass of clear, translucent glass bells evoke a visual quality of water and notions of spirituality and evanescence. They also convey a sense of fragility, lyricism, dream, imagination, a sense of presence and absence, and memory and displacement.
