"Cathedral" is a homage to the arts. This installation reinterprets the most essential architectural forms of a cathedral. Four visual artists have created the altarpiece, stained glass windows, frescoes, and an organ in their own modern practice and concept. Performance artists and musicians complete this idea of a space that creates a full-body experience kin to a religious spirituality. In essence, we have created a church of art for the contemporary masses.
