For nearly fifty years, St. George’s Church in the village of Lukova, in Czech Republic, lay abandoned. The last congregation held in this 14th century church was in 1968, when a funeral service was in progress and the ceiling and part of the roof collapsed sending everyone running outside. The terrified locals took it as a bad omen and never ventured inside. The church slowly crumbled away while sermons and services were held outside. The communists looted everything of value that was inside —paintings, statues, the church bell and the clock tower. The church organ was damaged.

Cut to 2014. A professor at the Department of Design and Fine Arts at the University of West Bohemia asked his third-year Bachelor students to a find a suitable but dilapidated church for an installation artwork. Each student was to find for themselves their own church. Some students found churches that had only the foundation or a few walls, but Jakub Hadrava, knew exactly where to find an abandoned but nearly intact church.
