The installation includes sculptures and paintings. The works are located in symbolic places in the center of the church, including in the high choir and under the organ. In Path, Obá plays with the meaning of religious icons and rituals and reflects on the fusion of cultural traditions as a result of, among other things, colonial history. With his work Obá investigates the relationship between religion, power and social identity and offers a new perspective on the history of the Oude Kerk.
