Big V

4 screen video installation

11 mins


Originally commissioned in 2003 by Leeds Art Gallery and Contemporary Art Society to make a work reflecting on growing-up in Leeds, Georgina Starr created the four-screen video installation Big V. Focusing on the mysterious power of the Virgin Mary and the female saints on the Catholic schoolgirl, the work explores a pre-adolescent voyage through procession, movement and corporeal enlightenment.
