Video (2012)

Untitled is a life-sized video projection of the artist – acting as Jesus – hanging on a wooden cross. The video was captured on Good Friday 2013, the
day traditionally marked as the day Jesus was crucified. Lasting approximately 3 hours, the duration of the video references the estimated time that
Jesus hung on the cross. The artist was unable to outlast Jesus due to critical physical conditions.
