The Oratorio de Sant Feliu in Palma de Mallorca is a 13th Century place of worship that has recently been converted into a gallery for Contemporary Art. It is still a place of worship in a way.
Currently – until May 9th – you can see an arrangement of three installation works by the French artist, Christian Boltanski, in the small chapel. This artist’s work is not often shown in Spain, but the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao has a Boltanski chamber in its permanent collection.
The work shown in my photograph is entitled Petit Monument Odessa (Relique) and dates from 1990.
This exhibition is, in my opinion, the most commendable art show in Mallorca at the moment and I would urge you to go and see Monsieur Boltanski’s theatrical work for yourself, worship or none.
