I continue to believe that we've got to close Guantanamo - Pres. Barack Obama
And Easter closing-in
The nails and crown of thorns
The razored holy days
to bring me to that point and place
it pains the world
The four life-sized sculptures of Christ by Adel Abdessemed are on display at the Prima Materia Exhibition in Punto Della Dogana in Venice until the end of the year.
The exhibit titled Decor was made in 2011 from Guantanamo Bay type razor wire and is modelled after the central panel of the Issenheim altarpiece by Matthias Grünewald (painted 1512-1516) which Abdessemed visited in Colmar as a student.
