Projected Histories: Saints

Projected Histories: Saints is a performance piece in which the human body serves as a canvas for images from the phenomenal world.Classical paintings of monks holdind books are projected as color transparencies onto a human figure,transforming the body into a piece of living sculpture.In these classical paintings,the books are symbols of knowledge.By projecting these painted images of books onto human body, I'm creating a sensuality which encompasses both flesh and knowledge.The composite eroticism of book and flesh culminates in the image of the spine of the book and the human spine united as a single entity.

Curated by Dante and Francoise Larcade
