Megan Fowler tells us…..The Salisbury Museum has lent Stonehenge-related objects to an exhibition created by the artist Jeremy Deller. Wiltshire B4 Christ is based largely on Stonehenge, and the museum has lent objects such as tools used at Stonehenge and bones found from feasts. The exhibition is at Store X, 180 The Strand in London and runs from Wednesday 16 January until Sunday 27 January.

16 – 27 January 2019
12pm – 7pm Daily
Conceived and produced by Aries in collaboration with British artists Jeremy Deller and David Sims, Wiltshire B4 Christ will take the form of an immersive exhibition, an art book, a limited-edition capsule collection and merchandise.
Shot at some of Britain’s key Neolithic sites including Stonehenge and Avebury, it engages with mysticism, pagan symbolism, and a particularly British exploration of identity, time and place.
The exhibition features a new film by Deller, light boxes by David Sims, painted murals, and artefacts from the Salisbury Museum. The exhibition also features the capsule collection and merchandise.
The exhibition will later tour to Milan in February, The Store X Berlin in March, before travelling to Tokyo and Florence.
