THE ORACLE at the Chapel of St Barnabas in London, 2018
First seen on the island of San Servolo in the Venetian Lagoon, the Oracle was selected for a site-specific installation at the Chapel of the House of St Barnabas in London.
Erected between 1862 and 1864, the building was partly designed from the plans of a Romanesque chapel attached to the Abbey of Montmajeur in Arles.
It is a symbolic and evocative setting for an installation which highlights the complex relations with rationality, faith and superstition.
