The Leaves of Southwell Project Presents: Let's Look!

A talk by Helen Eger and Canon Nigel Coates If the best art is that which awakens the soul, there is much to be said for being woken up gently and not being given too much information too soon. This talk describes the interpretation strategy developed by Studio Eger that is minimal in intervention, but which seeks nonetheless to deepen appreciation for the the Leaves of Southwell as ‘one of the glories of Europe.’ About Helen Eger Helen Eger founded Studio Eger in 2013, with the aim of collaborating with other industry specialists to create cultural projects within the public realm. She is an art director with over fifteen years’ experience of working with some of the world’s leading exhibition designers and museums. In 2002, she graduated with a Masters in Communication Art and Design from the Royal College of Art. About Canon Nigel Coates Canon Nigel Coates served as a residentiary canon for nearly 15 years at Southwell and has led the Leaves of Southwell project that reinterprets and reimagines the 13th-century masterpiece
