Dearly Beloved: A Karaoke Chapel

2016
video, installation, performance
‘After Pop Life’ exhibition

Purified with holy water from Lake Minnetonka, the Minnesota Street Project Media Gallery was temporarily rechristened as a place of worship for the music of Prince Rogers Nelson.

The Chapel hosted daily Hours of Contemplation, featuring a selection of Wofford’s karaoke videos. Special Services were also held certain afternoons and evenings, when the Karaoke Hymnal was opened to the faithful to choose and perform their songs of devotion.

The Chapel was part of the After Pop Life exhibition curated by Glen Helfand.
