A Summer in Le Havre 2017: ACCUMULATION OF POWER CHIHARU SHIOTA

“A church is a place for people to pray and do confession.
It is a place also for spiritual energy even for people who are not religious.
In my mind, every person in life has his/her own place of power.
The church, however, symbolises a place for collective power where thoughts, wishes, ideas and prayers accumulate.
The red whirlpool construction embodies an accumulation of spiritual power.
In this construction, all ideas, thoughts and prayers of people having been in the church are accumulated, like in a storm.
Its place above the pastor symbolises the inner power of people -each personal place of power comes to force in it.”
