You and Your Nativity

You and Your Nativity is an installation created for an 11th century church in Marnay-sur-Seine, France. Inspired by the architecture and by sculptures in church’s crèche, I developed a series of interactions between the personalities of the nativity and my drawings. The three kings, the animals, Joseph and Mary were each coupled with a drawing and then situated throughout the church. For example, Balthasar is walking down a red carpet, Melchior responds to a drawing of naked women, a cow examines an image of blood spilling and Joseph admires his reflection in a pond.

Details of Drawings

These drawings were installed in the church, and many of them were coupled with the sculptures in You and Your Nativity. Others were installed as singles on the pews.
