Emil Siemeister´s immersive installation The Placebo Macclesfield Psalter is inspired by the riotous imagery of the Fitzwilliam Museum’s Macclesfield Psalter, a tiny prayer book made in 14th century East Anglia that continues to capture the public’s imagination with its charming glimpses of every-day life, uninhibited fantasy and ribald humour. Here visitors are invited to step inside the world – and the mind – of the Macclesfield Psalter’s artists in a unique, dream-like experience.
The original manuscript is displayed in the Museum’s bicentenary exhibition,COLOUR: The art and science of illuminated manuscripts, in galleries 12 & 13, 30 July – 30 December 2016.
