St. Cyprian’s, Clarence Gate

John-Paul Stonard said that the best thing in this year’s Frieze  was an exhibition by Jodie Carey at St. Cyprian’s, Clarence Gate.   Since I was familiar with neither church nor artist, I thought I would check them out.

I should know St. Cyprian’s because it apparently in Nairn, described as ‘a sunburst of white and gold and all-embracing love’.   Opened in 1903, it was designed by Ninian Comper in his best pure gothic style ‘to fulfil the ideal of the English Parish Church’:-

The installation by Jodie Carey works well in the space – spiky and suitably gothic too:-
