Zheng Guogu: Brain Lines

Zheng Guogu presents a new site-specific work consisting of 13 freestanding light boxes, representing the 12 Apostles and Jesus. The work explores the fine line between faith and science, visually representing connections both within the brain and between Jesus and the 12 Apostles.

Li Wei: A Decorative Thing

Responding to the Gothic architecture of Manchester Cathedral and the religious building as a reflective space, Li Wei has created an intricate mirror sculpture. The decorative frame is adorned with images of both real animals and fantastical hybrid creatures providing a literal reflection on humanity, evolution, and scientific and religious beliefs.
