Magma was shot in a church in use, to be projected in the apse of an abandoned church, which is the actual gallery space.The video shots follow the direction of the cross, they are either vertical or lateral. While a mass takes place, someone walks around to investigate what faith is all about. No clues are found: churchgoers, statues, even the priest, are blindfolded. The dimension of faith sounds strong and powerful as the soundtrack suggests, yet is it invisible, or totally blind?
