“Reimagining Those Old Slopes” depicts a process in which the vision of the universe known from history demystifies and becomes a product aimed for the masses. Through his own eyes, the artist modernises the hill of purgatory created by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri at the beginning of the 14th century. Holger Loodus aims to look at how a mystical object loses its moralising content to become an easily acceptable attractive design object. However, this process opens up completely new perspectives, which also an artist, curator, and writer Tanel Rander indicates in his text for the publication accompanying the exhibition.
