Relic en Route, (2018)

Packaging materials, shipping labels, and relic

Installation

“Relic En Route” is a test of faith. Trust is the foundation of the handling of this relic from the dig site to the museum floor back to the dig site. Preservation is the key to maintaining the wonder and spirit of the relic, as it is alive through moisture alone. The installation consists of the relic from a past work “C’est Une Relique” being carefully packaged into a cardboard box, ready for shipping. The box has packaging tape branded with the Divinitive Logistics Solutions logo, a company that specializes in saving people money through redemptive programs. The box has a shipping label to be sent to a religious materials distribution company in the Netherlands. It may seem we are not handling the box with utmost care, but trust me, we are.
