The Way Of Care / Via Cura (2022)
Mixed Media - Floor Installation

The Via Crucis is the Christian series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and their accompanied prayers and customs. The path grew from the imitation of the Via Dolores in Jerusalem, a traditional processional route symbolizing the path to Mount Calvary, meeting his death. The 14 stations are an objective as a help to the Christian faith to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation, within churches, chapels, buildings, rooms, and houses to find guidance, strength and a score throughout a choreography that guides visitors through the space.

On the floor of the space there’s a pattern of golden puddles that guide you through the space. Almost like a portal to another dimension. The installation forces you to step on or maybe step through the scars of the artist. As it’s the artists way of telling the public ‘You’re walking over me, again’. With scars the body is the present with a well-written past.  

This installation was made on request and in collaboration with the G.O.D. collective for a residency at Kunsthal Ghent.
