Witness, a site-specific installation by Susie MacMurray at The National Justice Museum 4803

British artist Susie MacMurray has created a compelling new site-specific installation ‘Witness’ in response to the complex past of Nottingham’s Shire Hall, a former courthouse and prison, now home to the National Justice Museum.

‘Witness’ consists of six freestanding sculptural pillars woven from rope and installed in the Museum’s 18th century outdoor exercise yard. MacMurray is renowned for her poetic site-specific installations and the artwork is a powerful reflection on the history and architecture of the Shire Hall – a building where a person could be tried, sentenced, imprisoned, and executed.
