Stories from the Other Side.

This new project led by artist Luminara Florescu invites members of the public to commune with the spirits inside Shepton Mallet Prison in Somerset, one of the UK’s most haunted buildings.

The project explores the techniques used by members of the spiritualist movement first originating in the US as documented by artist Shannon Taggart in her book Seance.  

While exploring the 400 year old building, Luminara will guide participating members of the public in techniques using digital technology, automatic writing and deviation tools to conduct their own paranormal investigation.  The words and images they capture will be used to build a case file and develop a story of a fictional (or maybe real) person connected to the prison now communicating from the Other Side . 

Sessions take place on Sunday the 22nd, 29th May & 5th June 2022 from 1pm – 3pm
