Mexican artist Rodrigo Lara Zendejas soaring barrel-vaulted chapel-like structure with porcelain figures is based on his grandparents’ small personal chapel in their home in Mexico. Chapels—often rooms within individual’s home—were the earliest spaces of Christian worship. Lara Zendejas’s soaring project is scaled to fit within 6018North’s 1rst floor’s living room and drawing room. Statues and kneeling benches line the drawing room. As a nod to the replacement of personal chapels with personal museums, Lara Zendejas’s chapel is filled with statues of artists, rather than the Catholic saints in his grandparents’ chapel.
This exhibtion is open to the public Thursday - Sunday.
