ICHTHYS V: Transubstantiation

Experience #10. Electron 
Breda, Netherlands

In this project I use the fish as a distinctive Christian icon, and the burden of religion in our psyche. The manipulation of the fish in diverse ways becomes an exorcism of the cultural weight of the Christian legacy over the individual: martyrdom, humiliation and guilt. The iconization of these values act as an important part of the process their rooting in our culture. In this performance, I removed he scales of a fish and glued them to my face while I post the process by Instagram.
