La pell de la terra ~ Mare de Déu de la Serra (Farrera, Lleida, Spain)
In these images, my installation in the Romanesque church of Mare de Déu de la Serra in Farrera (Lleida, Spain).
“La pell de la terra” (Skins) has its origin in the journey I made from Barcelona to the Art and Nature center in Farrera, in Pallars Sobirà. The installation in Farrera was configured as a kind of altarpiece that replaces the traditional Christian iconography with a large abstract painting that refers to paths, ground and stone, thus highlighting the sacred component of walking and the mountain.
The intervention, imposing and discreet at the same time, highlights the spirituality and sacredness of the place, transforming the old church into a contemporary, universal, non-religious and non-denominational place of worship.
