Pilgrimage Along Modernity | Xavier Delory | Via

The Brussels-based artist continues the series with this latest opus: ‘Eglise saint-pierre de firminy: post-mortem’. the project envisions Le Corbusier’s saint-pierre church in the french region of Firminy decaying beyond recognition, its light concrete facade concealed behind a layer of grime and soot. Delory has hidden the exterior of the landmark behind a dirty, polluted coat, distorting its exiting architectural qualities and rendering it in a state of neglect and ruination. ‘what is left of the utopia,’ Delory questions, ‘the better future that the modern movement promised us at the beginning of the 20th century? these ‘museum buildings’, preserved like precious objects, are the sole vestiges of all that remains of this movement.’
