Religious Hybrids

Tersløse’s new series of computer constructed images encourages audiences to reflect on the interplay of diverse religious symbols and the evolving nature of cultural relationships.

The pictures neither blasphemes nor naively praises religious belief systems. Instead, they breathe life into a surreal universe where symbols and iconography from different religions coexist in an enigmatic, aesthetic harmony.

Tersløse’s works can be perceived as postmodern icons or simply as religious hybrids, blending elements from belief systems that traditionally stood in opposition to each other. His surreal world is exclusively populated by children, symbolizing a new generation striving to bridge the gap between traditionally adversarial beliefs and ideologies. Sometimes the bridging makes sense, while at other times, the sense is definitely lacking.
