Holier Than Thou, 2021 (video installation)

Holier Than Thou examines a lost soul in search of sanctuary. From behind a glory hole, a man confesses that he questions the purpose of (his) life. Unable to comprehend, he faces the question if a turn to religion, a turn to God, could offer him what he so longs for. The video installation illustrates an existential desire to fill a void and the need to be united in common fate.

Commissioned and acquired by Museum van Bommel van Dam for the museum’s permanent collection.

Dynamic CGI animation, rendered in 3D software.
Duration: 8 min (loop).
