EX-VOTO, 2009

Books, fabric, wood and string
120 X 80 X 20cm

This work is based on the tradition of
putting Ex-voto in churches and chapels
as votive offering to god or a saint.
I am using prayers books and novels
as well as more personal titles.
The rope and the coffin-like case
disturb the softness of the pillow.
The piece opens a dialogue between the
idea of protection of prayers and faith
and the limitations and obligations
that beliefs create for the individual.
