Hostie to go
‘Hostie to go’ is a collaboration project with Sae Honda. The proposal was written on the occasion of the annual art exhibition in the Old Church of Amsterdam
‘Hostie to go’ is for the independent believer who wants to celebrate mass anytime and anywhere. For only two euro the “Hostie to go” can be purchased from the vending machine in the church. Each package contains one altar bread which allows you to have your individual celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
This installation aims to criticize today’s mentality of consumption on the go, because there is no time anymore to stand still and concentrate on what is going on around us. The holy ritual of receiving the body of Christ is used here as an example to exaggerate the limits of the ‘to go’ mentality. The reactions to this project were of anger and amusement.
