Leather, bronze
300cm x 90cm



Part of the same series of mortuary shrouds as the previous work, this sculpture engages Roman Catholic and colonial aesthetics and thought. Seductive and cruel at once, it references crucifixion and flagellation and speaks to the notion of punishment and pain as protection (from hell perhaps). Made from a large piece of leather pierced with hundreds of hand made nails, it also observes the relationship between religion and brutality both physical and psychological.
