Rags Chapel

As an architect, I’ve always been fascinated by places of worship. The whole process behind the structure’s creation interests me: design, gathering of donations, selection of volunteers, construction and, finally, the feeling of peace in the chapel. At the Islands exhibition in St. Petersburg I had the chance to put this idea into practice — and in miniature, as it were — to imitate all these steps in the creation of a chapel. When people want to donate old things to the church, many of them store clothes in a bag, and for years they gather dust in closets. We collected these old rags and filled walls made of jars with them, building a place that both had a human presence and was cut off from the outside world; the latter, viewed through the jars, seemed less real than the meditative interior of the chapel.
