A public discussion and conversation on Broken Angel, a series of new site-specific installations to temporarily replace the Angel of the Eternal Gospel at Coventry Cathedral.

The original window, part of  John Hutton’s great glass West Screen, was destroyed in an act of vandalism in 2020 and Broken Angel is Coventry Cathedral’s creative response to filling the space.

Curator Mike Tooby and Artist Anne Petters who created the first installation of the Broken Angel series will discuss Anne’s works Lichtung – Break and Lichtung – White Drift at Coventry Cathedral.

You are welcome to join us to ask about and respond to Broken Angel.

We hope you can join us in person by dropping in the Coventry Cathedral West Screen (refreshments served afterward), or you can also join us online via this link

About Anne Petters

Anne Petters grew up in Dresden. Her work has been shown in the USA and Europe. Since 2017 she has had a studio in the UK following her appointment as Fellow in Glass at the City and Guilds of London school.

Anne describes her practice as “an attempt to visualise and materialise the poetic spiritual space of the everyday“. She uses glass, light and natural phenomena to make objects and installations that create a sense of wonder and curiosity in the viewer. Her work challenges our ideas of fragility and the passage of time.

Broken Angel

Transforming a fractured past into a shared future, Broken Angel is a series of new site-specific installations to temporarily replace the Angel of the Eternal Gospel at Coventry Cathedral. 

The original window, part of  John Hutton’s great glass West Screen,  was destroyed in an act of vandalism in 2020 and has been left as a blank pane of glass since. Broken Angel is Coventry Cathedral’s creative response to filling the space.
