Yinka Shonibare CBE, 'Creatures of the Mappa Mundi'
Hereford Cathedral, Hereford, UK
Creatures of the Mappa Mundi is a series of textile hangings inspired by one of Hereford Cathedral's treasures, the Mappa Mundi, which is the largest medieval world map to survive to the present day. Groups of local people have been invited to contribute to the making of the artwork by sewing Shonibare's designs into vibrant fabric panels, while taking part in facilitated discussions investigating the themes depicted.
