Three Vessels : Love's Labours

 

 

Three Vessels : Love’s Labours showed three films of three unconsecrated acts of manual labour that take place within the cathedrals: the cleaning of sacristy vessels, the lighting of candles and the conducting of sacred music. The work suggested that, by their regularity and serious intent, these activities were, in themselves, acts of devotion. This work was shown first in the Unity Chapel of the Metropolitan Cathedral and later in the South Choir Aisle of Liverpool Cathedral.
