Abstract [en]

Is it possible to convey spirituality through art and material culture? Is it possible to renew art within the traditional church so that it appeals and is understandable for the modern man? These are the fundamental questions of my master´s work, which has it´s starting point in a public commission for an artistic contribution to the new Pentecostal church in Kalmar. The work also addresses the question whether there is a need for symbolism, art and sacred objects also within the Pentecostal movement, a traditionally strong image hosting environment. If so, how is it possible to bring this in to the church without completely breaking with the tradition and ideology of the movement? I want to communicate the Christian message in a renewed way, and in this particular project also highlight the importance of using images also within the Pentecostal movement. The essence of this project is:

 How to communicate spiritually through material culture

 How to bring in a new tool of communication in to the Pentecostal movement. A visual tool that communicates in another dimension than what verbal tools does, touching other senses

 How to tell the essence of the Christian message in a renewed that still relates to the history and tradition of the Pentecostal movement

 How to include these aspects when creating something to the congregation in Kalmar
