Rigor Mortis IV: Conssagration

Capsule
Rotterdam, Netherlands 
2015



I tie a tourniquette to my arm, letting it getting numb and pale. Then, I cut down tomatoes in pieces and let the audience compare my two arms and touch them. Then, I blend the tomatoes and I free my tied arm. As I spill the tomato juice, the blood flood returns to my arm, this becoming crimson red. Consagration is the moment in the Catholic mass when the host and the wine are offered and supposedly becoming the flesh and blood of Christ.
