A commission by York Mediale from creative collective KMA, ‘People We Love’, returns to York Minster for a second year.  The piece features five, floor mounted, high definition screens in the Nave that will each show video portraits of a York local, looking at a picture of someone they love.  After over a year of being kept at a distance from family and friends, it’s a poignant reminder of how precious love, and those loved, are.

Originally commissioned for the 2020 York Mediale festival, ‘People We Love’ was open for just three days before the national lockdown in November 2020. Refreshed for 2021 with new subjects, the emotive installation watches those involved as they reflect, remember and are reminded of a loved one.
