Giant art project about Religious Fundamentalism at this workshop.
The project puts focus on religious fundamentalism within Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The project is to establish a constructive dialog and bridge the gap between Jews, Christians and Muslims. The dialog is staged through the art installation ‘Fundamentalism’ and 600 ‘light’ (‘good’, compassionate etc.) and ‘dark’ quotes from the Torah, Bible and Quran.
We have made a secretariat
, which is organizing the dialogue process and the exhibitions. At the workshop we are working full time on making the 80 square meters and 14 tons "Fundamentalism"- sculpture which the project revolves around. It is built by 8000 copper books, which forms the letters ‘F.U.N.D.A.M.E.N.T.A.L.I.S.M’. The letters are placed in a big circle. In the exterior of the sculpture circle, 14 big flat screens display the ‘light’ quotes, in the interior the ‘dark’ quotes are displayed. See info and photos
The grand opening/revealing of the sculpture will take place at Art Center "Silkeborg Bad" (in Denmark) in January, 2015.
We are also working on 10 minor sculpture-pedestals, which will very soon be used for exhibitions throughout Denmark. Amongst other things we ‘invade’ the political ‘Peoples Summit’ in Bornholm with a range of Sculptures, screens displaying quotations and lots of activists.
Competition: We have made a really cool ‘Quiz On Quotes’
, where you have to guess the origin of quotations from the holy books The Torah, The Bible and The Quran. Try it!
– its rather fun, and it will make you smarter and prettier (that’s a garantee). Moreover you can win a copper book-sculpture from ’Fundamentalism’-art installation.
In a later mail we will send out more information about the project.
Many kind regards.
And do remember to enjoy the spring time.
