The Holy Shroud by Veronica Piraccini is an unforgettable immersive experience designed to take the viewer on an insightful journey through history, art and science. It explores our enduring fascination with the Holy Shroud of Turin, a large linen cloth bearing the image of a crucified man alleged to be Jesus of Nazareth.
Originating from the most venerated and controversial religious icon in the world, Piraccini had realised a series a paintings in which truth and artifice, illumination and mystery, suffering and solace come together to reveal a path from hypothesis to revelation, be it historical, artistic or spiritual. In January 2015, Pope Francis bestowed his blessing on Piraccini’s works, assuring the artist an honored place in a long tradition of sacred art.
Whether you are a believer, atheist or agnostic, The Holy Shroud is an extraordinary exhibition that transforms an art gallery into a space for dialogue and contemplation. Having created a series of artworks born of contact with the Holy Shroud, and using a painting technique of her own invention, the remarkable achievement of Piraccini’s exhibition is that it stands unequivocally at the intersection of religion, science and art.
