Architecture and Religion
North End Studios to Host Exhibition Featuring Local and International
Artists Chris Adams, Pierre Chaumont and Marco Terenzi
North End Studios is pleased to announce an exhibition entitledGeotheism featuring the artwork of
Pierre Chaumont, Marco Terenzi and Chris Adams on Saturday May 11th, 2013. The gallery will open to
the public at 7 p.m until 1 a.m.
Chaumont's installation, entitledPaturon Chimere, questions the relation between belief and
religion. "Throughout this entire process, I am asking questions to both the religious and atheists,
because they both believe in something," explained Chaumont, a 2011 graduate of Université du
Québec à Montréal with a Bachelor of Fine Art and Media.Paturon will also feature an engaging
performance ritual to take place at 9 p.m. See more of his work at pierrechaumont.com.
Detroit native Chris Adams'De‐tropolis explores the fictional portrayal of a city that is empty and
abandoned, using places and things to construct the atmosphere. "The atmosphere my work created is
strange, eerie, and somewhat sinister," says Adams, regarding his photographic prints. His work is not
intended to devalue or promote political awareness of any kind towards Detroit's often pre‐conceived
reputation. Chris graduated in 2012 with a degree in Digital Video Production from Washtenaw
Community College and publishes a selection of his images at chrisadamsimagery.net.
College for Creative Studies graduate and architectural artist Marco Terenzi will also be featuring his
distinctive distressed architectural works. Terenzi describes his work as focusing on the relationship
between industry and nature. Marco added, "I am inspired by current events that I abstract to create
work that documents this time in history from my perspective."
