Prayer is an ongoing project, remade around the world since its first presentation in Webb’s home city of Cape Town in 2000.

The work consists of recordings of prayer from individuals who belong to dozens of faiths and spiritual affinities in the host city.

Listeners are invited to remove their shoes and walk the length of the carpet, composing their own arrangement of voices as they go, or to kneel or otherwise lower themselves next to a speaker to listen more closely to particular prayers.

Tuesday – Sunday 11am-5pm | Friday 11am-9pm | Closed Mondays
