MAUSOLEUM II (2011) - Krist Wood

(1)


Beyond the initial site of interment, the viewer may explore a surrounding Holy Ground in which the ubiquitous default cube and its various motifs of simulation manifest as sites of worship; a Cult of the Cube, imbued with evidence of a mysterious system of religious symbolism. The piece is presented as a journey, beckoning the viewer to explore and discover a liminal space between simulation and reality.
