St. Ives Uniting Church undertook a special Easter project for the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Each year we invited 15 leading Australian artists to produce a ‘contemporary’ Station of the Cross for an exhibition in the church to be displayed for a ten day period at Easter.

The Stations, originally shaped by St Francis in the thirteenth century, are a way of ‘praying’ the way of Jesus’ journey to the cross. There is a connection with our lived experience in the present because praying the stations is an existential prayer: “how do I live when I know that I am mortal or finite”.

The artist’s names were placed in a hat and pulled out randomly in order to allocate the stations each year. A pastorally informed commentary on the Stations of the Cross, written by our minister of the time Doug Purnell, was given to each artist as a starting point. The artists were given 6-9 months to produce the work. How the artists made the work was entirely up to them. The works remained the property of the individual artist who had created them.

The idea of engaging contemporary artists in the project was a way to open a conversation between these themes and the wider human drama being acted out in many forms in contemporary society.

We wanted to offer the opportunity for a deep and rich experience of Easter. We offered guided tours with commentary for those interested. Easter worship was shaped by and enacted in the presence of the works.
