The Fury of the Saints

ShowingNovember 22, 1997 - January 30, 1998

Four polychromed sculptural figures, rendered in the style of the Spanish artist Cotan, who painted slain martyrs, comprise the focal point of this work, which explores faith as the engine of history. The four figures are accompanied by a video projection directed at the floor, which is covered in salt, of a couple in an ambiguous embrace, somewhere between lovemaking and fighting. This is the first U.S. presentation of The Fury of the Saints following a recent European tour of the installation.

Exhibition organized by Helaine Posner, curator, MIT List Visual Arts Center. Exhibition coordination by Jon Roll.
