Still from multi screen visual installation Grace by artist Sophie Dixon NGI
A brand-new film installation exploring Grace Darling and her historic rescue of nine stranded survivors onboard the shipwrecked SS Forfarshire in 1838 will open at the RNLI Grace Darling Museum on 7 September 2021 - the 183rd anniversary of the rescue. The multi-screen visual installation by artist Sophie Dixon (www.sophie-dixon.com) explores the story of Grace Darling from her childhood, right through to her death in 1842. Titled, ‘Grace’, the new installation at the RNLI Grace Darling Museum in Bamburgh, Northumberland, forms part of the Arts Council England-funded Meeting Point programme, led by contemporary arts agency Arts&Heritage (www.artsandheritage.org.uk). Visitors will be transported to Grace’s home on Longstone Island where digital reconstructions of items from the museum’s collections will bring her story to life. An original score by musician Kathy Alberici weaves together sounds of the Farne Islands and North East voices. For more information visit www.rnli.org/gracedarling. A dedicated website for the exhibition has also been created – www.grace-darling.film.
