Local artist Wilhelm Vincent’s exhibit explored the connection between architecture and the male body today during Plett ARTS Festival in a display entitled Temples which took place at Pippa’s Flowers.
He ingeniously enfolded the nature of the temple as architecture into the nature of the temple as male body.
“Our body is our temple, literally. We are a sacred space, we are a ritual space. What we hold sacred is ourselves, what we ritualise is life. Architecture and the male form is sacred, it is a ritual, it is a prayer, and it is inevitably and eventually sacrificed.”
The Plett ARTS Festival runs from 30 June to 22 July.
