World-acclaimed Portuguese visual artist, Joana Vasconcelos, has conceived the stunning work "Suspension", a 28 meter-high rosary, inaugurated in 2017 during the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Apparitions, placed vertically in the Church of the Most Holy Trinity. Today this work can be seen from an horizontal perspective upon a replica of Leonardo Da Vinci's Vetruvian Man.
According to Pope Francis, artists are "God's allies", playing a deeply important social role. Joana Vasconcelos shares this vision, believing that "beauty, harmony and aesthetic contribute for peace, just like the beads of a rosary". The rosary "Suspension" was exhibited at the Guggenheim and the Uffizi gallery. It represents a connection of peace, hope, love and tolerance between heaven and earth. The beads area made of a plastic material, connected to each other by metal hooks, with a Vitruvian cross, which "is a sign of humanism".
The work "Suspension" integrates the temporary exhibit "Rosarium: Joy and Light, Pain and Glory". It is free of charge and it can be visited at the Convivium de Santo Agostinho, the ground floor of the Church of the Most Holy Trinity from 9 o'clock to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 17:30. Guided tours take place everyday. It can be visited until October 15th 2024.
