Paul Benney: Night Paintings

Friday 18 Dec 2020 - Sunday 20 Dec 2020

Part of Christmas at Snape Maltings

NIGHT PAINTINGS is an outdoor exhibition of multimedia projections by Paul Benney with soundscapes by SALLIS, a musical collective led by Paul Benney including Nitin Sawhney. Admission is FREE but please book.

Benney brings his hypnotic art works, that lie on the borderlands between the spiritual and the secular, into the open air, using the external facades of buildings at Snape Maltings as giant canvases.

“Benney shows us our lives as they balance on that fragile boundary between the perfectly ordinary and the profoundly otherworldly. He seeks to capture that mystery which redeems us from the mundane.”

– Rachel Campbell Johnston



Audiences are encouraged to dress warmly.

Projections will be running for two hours.

Please note that, in accordance with guidance for Tier 2, booking groups must not exceed 6 people unless all members of the group are from the same household or support bubble.
