Delvoye has created the metallic, gothic-inspired chapel with stained glass windows containing subversive imagery specially for Mudam. The artist makes reference to his own work in black, grey and coloured glass. Obscene gestures, kisses, human intestines and skeletons from Cloaca are x-rayed, thus gaining the status of pagan stained glass windows. His x-rayed pieces of meat unveil their atheist message thanks to the light that stained glass once rendered divine. The skulls, the bones and their by-products are grimacing, cynical modern Vanities.
