Pools of used motor oil adorned the floors of the Bellelay Abbey Swiss church in a 2013 exhibit entitled La Mise en Abîme. The stunning display featured two shallow organically shaped pods filled with oil created by Swiss artist Romain Crelier. The still pools of liquid reflect the architectural detailing displayed throughout the 12th century church. The contrast of the dark floors against the surrounding white washed interior creates the perfect juxtaposition of white and black. I would love to have been a fly on the wall when this project was pitched. Convincing the overseers of this church to allow you to place pools of used motor oil throughout the corridors of their 12th century church couldn’t have been an easy task. We may not know how it happened, but we’re glad it did!
We love it!
