David LaChapelle: Stations of the Cross

The exhibition, which will be inaugurated by LaChapelle himself on Oct. 27, features striking new works, fifteen scenes from the Stations of the Cross arranged along a path symbolizing Christ's journey to the Crucifixion, which the artist has interpreted by drawing inspiration from different examples, from medieval to postmodern times, imagining the traditional religious narrative in a new, colorful and poetic way. With his unique style and composition, LaChapelle presents in the guise of Christ the Italian artist and actor Tedua, for whom the photographer signed the covers of the albums "Purgatorio" and "Inferno"; theatrical elements along with symbolic figures transport the devotional practice, in which the viewer visits each station praying, into the present time.
