Performance by Massimiliano Manieri

Primo Piano LivinGallery, Lecce

A media Golgotha lies between four television sets. A Christ revisited and updated in our times, forcibly connected to devices, “crucified” in another form, but equally sacrificed and placed as a warning of a common sin, perhaps a Pharisee mass distraction.
Sacrifice also places him here at the maximum weight of condemnation:
the forced connection to the same television sets, which we suppose he rejects, together with being painful, in this vision, is that body also the antenna of the new transmissions in the making? of which he himself becomes an immolated filter?
