STILLED SHADOWS: A MAGIC LANTERN SHOW WITH CHLOE ARIDJIS
Novelist Chloe Aridjis returns to Swedenborg House to perform her ‘enchanting’ magic lantern presentation. Drawing on magic lantern slides held in the Swedenborg Society’s historic archive, Chloe will weave new narratives and stories to long forgotten images and events. Described by writer and editor Jennifer Higgie as ‘wondrously moving and occasionally funny’ and by Juliet Jacques as ‘genuine, immersive magic’, the event will also feature lanternists Jeremy and Carolyn Brooker, and and new music by composer James Keay.
‘Utterly enthralling. An experience of how art nestled its way into technology. . . This unusual show—a time travel, in many ways—brings us to innocence after too much experience. Literally magic!’ Fiona Shaw
