Using found objects, or 'interesting rubbish ... with a past history' as the artist describes it, Sophie Hacker created a sequence of arresting images inspired by Olivier Messiaen's majestic La Nativite du Seigneur. Originally conceived as an exhibition to accompany a performance of the music, these 'icons' are visual and symbolic explorations of the themes of the work's nine movements.
Icons of the Incarnation celebrates a fusion of artistic imagination and creativity. Sophie Hacker introduces the works and describes the processes of working with musician Sarah Baldock to visualise Messiaen's profound theological vision. Accompanying meditations by Roland Riem add a third dimension to this collaborative project between art and music, reaching out to the inexpressible in poetry.
