Templar Phases XVI – Textile – 2016
I am fascinated by how much unease people in a secular society can feel towards religion while at the same time appropriating its rituals and aesthetics, and defending their moral and secular standpoints with a zeal that is hard to discern from the religious zeal they abhor. What do we worship, and where? And what can a place of worship look like? In this work that is part of a series i research and challenge the innate rules we seem to have about places of worship. Can it look like anything, and if not, why not? Can we welcome the “others” even if they abide by different rules?
