Existing both online and “IRL”, the exhibition is set up in the San Giuseppe Church in Polignano a Mare, but due to social distancing practices, it will not be accessible to the public. Focused on themes of love and faith, the exhibition prompts viewers to reflect on feelings of intimacy and isolation felt both on a regular basis and during a global pandemic.
Sinners will be forgiven. Corrupt will not […]. Open yourself to love. i
Originally, this video project was designed for the 17th century San Giuseppe Church in Polignano a Mare, but with the pandemic and related rules on social distancing, things have changed. The project underwent a splitting process (IRL/online) which transformed it into a two-faced herma, in love with a face that cannot be touched.
The exhibition is actually set up in the church but public access will never be allowed.
It is possible to visit it HERE – so the project exists simultaneously online and in the church where no one can experience it, except through a leap of faith.
