The Catacomb Saints were holy ancient (bodies) carefully exhumed from the catacombs of Rome and sent abroad to serve as relics of certain saints from the 16th century to the 19th century. They were typically lavishly decorated with gold and precious stones. Enthralled and captivated by this idea, my artist friends (fellow curators Daniel Kranz, Markus Ferris) and I have decided to take this beautiful concept and expand on it, to create a very unique gallery experience for all to enjoy. With this exhibit we revisit the Catacomb Saints, but with new interpretation by international artists. The Saints of this exhibition will encapsulate another dimensional realm, one unlike our own. Some Saints may appear to be dark in nature others light, and some may not even be human.
Death has not always been something easily accepted, and these are Issues that are suppressed, or intuitive and inexplicable due to their complexity, but have always been expressed through art, and this is still so.
With the presentation of Catacomb Saints, we hope to spark the existential question and curiosity of ones own existence or mortality, with the possibility that understanding death is merely a cycle of life that creates more beauty than it does sadness and fear of the unknown.
Music conducted by: Dj Rickbats
