According to the Catholic Church, transubstantiation is the mystical process in which the wine and the bread turn into the blood and the flesh of Christ. With this performance, I wanted to express the impossibility of the individual to fit with models of behavior imposed by religion. In the performance, I take off my clothes and after tie them on my waist, I disassemble clothe hangers and then wrap them around my head. I try to bear the pain until I am done repeating the action with all of them. This performance alludes to martyrdom culture of Christianty.
