Church of David Hockney a site specific collaboration with Peter McGinnis creating work for Arches Open Studio 2019. The work a kneeler reconstructed from reclaimed pallet wood, invites the audience to climb steps and perform the act of kneeling in front of a suspended stained glass effect window. As the viewer approaches the work the recorded sound of a Gregorian chant is heard from the stool, and upon kneeling the viewer can feel the vibration. The work considers the relationship between art and faith, with the potential of changing a space into one of ritual and sensory engagement.

Material: reclaimed wooden pallets, fabric, sound
