This temporary exhibition explores Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee of 1897 from the point of view of those who celebrated it. The exhibition has been designed by ACME Studios and features an innovative video installation by Newangle.
The installation uses multiple projections to illuminate a large sculptural form made up of hundreds of gauze strips. These strips are arranged in a large diamond shape allowing visitors to walk inside and view a specially constructed animation. The installation gives a sense of being amongst the crowds of onlookers celebrating in the streets, as Queen Victoria passes by in her carriage.
