I created a work about points in the Bible for a group show at exhibition space De Punt (The Point). In the Dutch translation of the Bible, the word “punt” (translated as ‘point’ or ‘location’) is used 45 times. I searched for the exact location on a world map using each ‘point’ and made a ‘biblical points map’.
This is the first in a series of works inspired by key words in the Bible. Certain keywords can group seemingly-unrelated stories together and cast new light on the stories’ meanings.
The exhibition was opened on Friday, February 21, 2014 at De Punt.
