Where one is the other must be
4m neon sign
2014

Where one is the other must be is a light installation featuring a neon sign 4 meters long. It was first installed in the Uppsala Cathedral in Sweden. The piece represents a particular interpretation of the holy eucharist, the offering of flesh and blood, which differs in interpretation across different Christian denominations. In this case, Hjelm introduces a catholic interpretation of the holy eucharist in the seat of Sweden’s protestant church and beliefs.
