Site-specific installation created to explore the transformation of profane into sacred and a ritualistic act
Kneeler: Reclaimed wood, fabric, recorded sound
Hockney’s Window: plastic, metal chain
Within the space the viewer is invited to ascend the steps and kneel in front of a suspended plastic replica of David Hockney’s stained-glass window installed at Westminster Abbey. Once in position, the viewer is able to listen to an audio recording concealed within the kneeler, of Spencer whispering the Gregorian chant Hosanna filio David.
