Requiem, 1999

Sala 1 Galeria
Rome, Italy

Photographic Duraclear and cloth

4.5 x 6'


The arched window in the gallery hosts Requiem, a personal vision of the Holy Steps Sanctuary. Photographic views of the faithful ascending to the site of the Santa Sanctorum on the right are paired with an action by the artist using a series of small stones: the lunette of the window depicts her four fingers covered in ashes, evoking both evangelical and personal references, marking life's journey or the inevitability of its end.
