Revive! invites a discovery and exploration of the mysterious crypt underneath St Mary Magdalene Church

Revive! invites a discovery and exploration of the mysterious crypt underneath St Mary Magdalene Church built by George Edmund Street, a highly original, influential and radical Gothic Revivalist architect.

The artists have created site-specific works to reinvent and reinterpret this intimate space exploring issues such as ritual and spirituality, memory and presence, death and transfiguration and the notion of revivalism in our post-Brexit Britain and after Trump victory.

Revive! is the second part of a two-fold project began by Pompe and devised in reaction to Frieze Art Fair. The Dionysian procession led its followers along Regent’s Park canal via a series of performances and culminated in the crypt where Revive! will take place.

Participating artists: STASIS, Pavel Pepperstein, Adam Barker-Mill, Hans Rosenström, Carolyn Barker-Mill, Alan Magee, Jonathan McCree, Niklas Gustafson and Col Self.

Galitzine MacKenzie’s exhibitions are often motivated by a desire to draw attention to and include local communities. Revive! continues this ambition. The church, together with the Paddington Development Trust, are raising funds to create a community and heritage hub in order to enrich, regenerate and bring greater cultural cohesion to the local area as well as to support the restoration of the Grade 1 listed church building. Revive! aims to draw attention to this cause and the project will reach out to various vibrant community groups active in the area.

Please donate generously here to their cause and help make this project a reality.

Revive! at St Mary Magdalene Church, Rowington Close
