"Threshold to the Kingdom"

Video by Mark Wallinger


For "Threshold to the Kingdom", first shown at the Venice Biennale in 2001, Wallinger simply took his camera to the arrivals gate at a London airport and filmed travellers at the moment they are entering the UK.

Filmed in slow motion, the video is silent except for Allegri's Miserere, a setting of the 51st psalm ("Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness/In your compassion blot out my offence"), which for centuries was sung only in the Sistine Chapel.
