DE PROFUNDIS 2006
A dark and desolate full moon landscape with a tree bending over a graveyard and a small wooden church is the setting for a 'Wunderkammer' for children, including a collection of religious objects. A group of local children aged 6 to 10 performs religious 'rituals' in this setting. The religious rituals consist of several Latin prayers and a Latin Mass, repeated phonetically and devoted to the specific religious objects. The collaboration with the children resulted in a 'religious movie' which was part of the installation. Work made together with Ondrej Brody.
