21st Faith


We are a collaborative research project, investigating and questioning faith as a human feeling. 

This publication presents 32 creative projects created for an exhibition in October 2017 at The Workshop, Lambeth. 


The Shadow of Death,

by Goodness Victor.

An exploration of suffering

and the darker sides of the human

experience within biblical text,

expressed through a series

of illustrations and poetry.

The majority of my work starts

with anatomy.

For me it’s the level playing field

beneath the skin.

It’s beneath the layers of faith,

of tribe, of skin, of opinion, of colour

and of creed.


three times i pleaded with the lord.


2 corinthians 12 vs 7-10

english standard version

three times i pleaded with the lord,

for the cup of suffering to pass.

yet thorns of pain found themselves,

within the flesh of my skin,

weighing heavy on these bones.

grief found herself within my veins.

pain found herself within my bones.

three times i pleaded with the lord.

joy finds herself within my veins.

hope finds herself within my lungs.
