THE CHURCH (WRAPPED) represents a silhouette of a typified church made of a rolled sheet of iron, recognizable only by its symbolism of cross and openings and arches of a sacral architecture. This repurposed chimney or exhaust outlet is a visual aphorism speaking to the profanation of organized religion, to the prescriptive sacred, a symbol of dominant and binding model of spirituality represented as the packing or empty, used shell of some long gone and burnt out values.
