LIDUINA IN THE ROSE GARDEN / LIDUINA’S SKIN

2015 / 7 x 5 m /  Bark, slate chippings, wood, paint, varnish / Installation on location / Commissioned by CBK Schiedam

The installation ‘Liduina in the rose garden / Liduina’s skin’ is inspired by the great suffering of Saint Liduina (patron saint of the long-term ill) and by her unconditional love for God and her fellow human beings.
In the garden of the Sint Jan’s Church in Schiedam (NL) three rosebeds are situated in a field of white pebble-stones. By adding a fourth bed – filled with (partially red painted) bark and slate chippings – I created a work that refers to a.o. the skin of Liduina (bark), her suffering and virginity (white cross of pebble-stones), her salvation (blossoming red rozes), open wounds, stigmata and love.
This work is made in commission of the Schiedam Art Centre as part of the Liduina year.
