Worshippers in St. Joseph Chapel have been challenged to encounter their sacred space in a new way since “Curalium,” a 50-foot curving, floating sculpture was installed last week.
“Curalium” was created by German artist Angela Glajcar, who assembled it in the chapel from March 21 to 23. It will be exhibited through May 16.
The project, unique in the United States, is designed to foster a dialogue between the world of faith and the world of contemporary art. It is modeled after the Kunst-Station Sankt Peter, in Cologne, Germany, a functioning parish that also serves as a center for contemporary art and music. Kunst-Station founder, Rev. Friedhelm Mennekes, S.J., a visiting art critic in the department of visual arts at Holy Cross, is shepherding the project on campus.
