Davide Cascio & Christian Kathriner

According to legend, the house in which Maria received the apparition of the Angel of Annunciation, the Santa Casa, was relocated by angels from Nazareth first to Dalmatia and then to Loreto. Since the 15th century, the Santa Casa of Loreto has become one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites. In 2009, the artists Davide Cascio and Christian Kathriner developed a work that refers back to this legend. They created two wall carpets for the pilgrimage chapel of Our Lady of Hergiswald -- a replica of the Santa Casa in Loreto. The wall carpets, Jacquard tapestries, were woven on a CAD-operated loom in Flanders. The tapestries show a group of people apparently resting at the edge of a riverbed. The large-scale publication presents this temporary spatial installation by Davide Cascio and Christian Kathriner in striking color images that at the same time absorb the opulent decoration of the Baroque chapel of Hergiswald and simultaneously refract it within a contemporary aesthetics.
