St John on Bethnal Green brings together four artists under the theme 'Pilgrimage – Walking to Heaven'
walking to heaven

Rebecca Feiner's 'If dreams reflect the past, hope summons the future' is her interfaith and secular response to Jerusalem's Wailing Wall and ''Incorporeal Consciousness' depicts a celebration of spirituality without boundaries.

Pauline Thomas' piece 'Devotional Journeys' weaves together the flight of birds through different religious texts.

May Ayres' powerful ceramic sculptures 'Winning Hearts and Minds' and 'Proconsul' ask the visitor to walk with victims of empire, unnamed and unknown.

Arabella Lee's 'Unhallowed', are projected images, which tell of children's burial grounds in a specific landscape in Ireland, unmarked but for a few stones.
