CAPC invited artist Danh Vo to create a site-specific installation for the monumental space of the main hall of the CAPC, known as the “Nave”. The sculpture references both a cathedral and a storage facility. It is divided into four sections, which highlight connections between personal and collective histories, but also embody an investigation of the relationship between the artworks and the architecture and memory of the historic building that is home to museum.
Through its monumentality and the sheer weight of the marble blocks that compose it, Danh Vo’s installation evokes a particular relationship with power and invites visitors to stroll through the exhibition and build their own narrative.
