sacellum: a small chapel within a church, or a sanctuary dedicated to a deity
Sacellum is an infected confection of the sacred and technology. A melancholic wink at consumerism and spirituality. A dialogue between a certain past and an uncertain future.
The artist reclaims engravings of Renaissance images and layers them with a mélange of modern detritus – from aluminium cans to discarded laptop motherboards – scanned at ultra-high resolution to reveal surprising new views and hidden landscapes.
Technology is as omnipotent and omnipresent as religion once was, controlling what we see and feel, for better or worse. In the past, priests and preachers were the exclusive producers of cultural propaganda, but today this role is subsumed by the ubiquity of our devices and our connection to the internet.
Sacellum is a contemplation of this control of our hearts and minds; a moving patternation of the contemporary and the classical. The portals of belief continue to look over us, providing a glimmer of hope for what lies ahead.
