The Journeyer (2011)

For eight years Susan Wood has travelled to Winchester from her home village initially as a student now as a working artist. This drawing brings together sound marks from aural sketchbooks of her parish to create a conversation between these two juxtaposed communities in the same diocese.

Chaucerʼs pilgrims in The Canterbury Tales shared their disparate experiences as they journeyed. Here she dips into hers. It is a travellerʼs tale, carried in her rucksack ready for exchange. It was composed for the HARP/Hyde exhibition Invisible Cities in St. Bartholomewʼs church and Hyde Gate.
