"The Old City of Jerusalem is bursting with religious life...and strife. Everywhere you turn, the narrow alleyways are surging with black hatted, ringleted Orthodox Jews, Muslim women in hijabs and long coats, Armenian priests in dark robes, and religious practises as diverse as the costumes. This piece is something of a metaphor for my own complicated spiritual journey in Jerusalem - trying to find peace in the midst of the religious fervour and a way out of the confusion and darkness I found myself sliding into. Returning to the Ten Commandments helped me get ‘back to basics’ hence these are engraved on the worn steps. As these commandments are central to all 3 Abrahamic faiths, the piece suggests many treading the same spiritual and geographical ‘path’ through the Holy City over thousands of years, all searching and yearning for the same ultimate destination."
