‘broken & mended’ was a two-part installation that invited contemplation of brokenness and redemption. Seven basalt stones from the river Clyde were split and hung in Renfield St.Stephen’s Church, Glasgow.  The timing of the installation, during Holy Week and within the context of the sacred space, invited questions about the relationship between the Christian understanding of the crucifixion of Christ and the universal human experience of brokenness.   The stones were mended for Easter Sunday, in a transformative action, referencing and recalling the resurrection of Christ.
