Using the Catholic concept of limbo to parody the general malaise of postmodern spirituality, 10th and Center juxtaposes the sacred and the profane in an installation that examines the quintessential elements of our postmodern condition—the unapologetic cultural appropriation of traditional forms and rituals to create new objects and customs. With icons from world religions and references to a nature-filled paradise, the theme park reveals a false promised land existing within a liminal space that spans both pleasure and torture—a quasi-limbo suggesting dystopia rather than nirvana.
