Device to Root Out Evil


Created by New York artist Dennis Oppenheim, this topsy-turvy church titled ‘Device to Root Out Evil’ was first showcased at the 1997 Biennale art fair in Venice. The 25 foot high sculpture was moved from Vancouver to Calgary in 2008, where it sat in the Ramsay neighbourhood. It was removed at the beginning of 2014, after the temporary lease expired.
