Carol Marples presents ‘7 Days’, an installation of seven mixed-media textile panels in the unique, contemplative environment of the University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel.

Dates: Monday 1st - Friday 26th November 2021
Venue: University Memorial Chapel
Opening Times: 10am-4pm weekdays
(noting that services in the Chapel are usually between 12 and 2pm.)

Taking as a starting point the ancient Hebrew text of Genesis, Chapter 1- telling of the seven days of creation - seven panels, (1M x 1M) were created from re-purposed fabrics, gold-leaf, emulsion, candle wax and thread. From Mid-July to mid-October the panels were installed in seven different gardens therefore handing the works over to the various situational and elemental environments of these places. Changes to the panels over these eight weeks are being documented by the artist – available to see on Soul Marks social media sites and Website. The seven panels will be exhibited during COP26 – in whatever state they have evolved to. 

7 DAYS aims to cause us to reflect on the gift of creation. Our role and our place in it, what past and present effects our actions or inactions have caused, and the choices we now make in caring for and repairing it.
