The founder of Camp St. Malo, Monsignor Joseph Bosetti, had for years entertained an idea that one day he would build a chapel on this site. In 1916 he and two friends observed a falling meteor during the night and in his search for the remnants the next morning, he came across a large rock. The beauty of the land inspired the priest and he remembered Jesusâ€™ words to Peter: â€œUpon this rock, I will build my Church.â€ (Matt 16:18).
Demitra Thomloudis - REMNANTS implements the structural language of the urban built environment. Hand fabricated out of steel, sterling silver and embellished with graphite pencil, my work borrows and deconstructs the organization and materials of constructed spaces. Within these simple forms ornament is described and invented through the simplicity of an edge, a sand paper mark or the junction of the materials themselves.
