A principal genre of Western art, the subject of still life painting or sculpture is defined as anything that does not move or is dead. Interpreting its meaning, 29 artists present recent works in a range of media: painting, drawing, collage, sculpture and film, with surprising results. Set within the historic faded glory of the Asylum Chapel. For one day only.
