  In November 2007 Holland and Poulton began a year-long residency in the two cathedrals of Liverpool. During that time six temporary site-specific works were made, including film, installation, and performance.

This page includes still images of all six works together with documentary film footage of the three works that used moving image Two Seas : High Water, Ring of Roses : Paper Falls on Stone and Three Vessels : Love’s Labours   and an audio recording of the performance work, Heartsounds.

It also includes a reading by Peter Halligan of Upon This Rock, a commissioned piece of writing by Chris Lethbridge that was inspired by Holland and Poulton’s work.

 
   
 

The page is accompanied by a printed catalogue that includes an essay by Art Historian and Theologian, Dr Rina Arya, and features a further work, Earth and Æther, which the artists made at the invitation of Liverpool Cathedral as part of their 2010 Liverpool Biennial programme. The catalogue is available as a hard copy from the artists and is downloadable as a pdf  from this website.

Holland and Poulton were nominated for the Northern Art Prize 2009 for the six artworks made during their Cathedrals’ Residency.
