Installation: printed stills from several films, toothbrush, mirror, nannycam, face oil, palm ash, rosary, hymn book
I have been playing around with the idea of the bathroom mirror as an altar- ritualistic routines paralleled with sacred rituals like in this case, the holy communion replaced by Ribena and a slice of purple bread. All in the setting of my bathroom. I look at myself and film myself via a mini nanny-cam attached to the top of my head. Other rituals I've done like marking crosses of palm ash on myself symbolize things like Ash Wednesday/repentance-loosely following the 7 sacraments of Catholicism. Trying to make sense of things by putting the mundane and sacred on the same level of significance, and if I perform these rituals instead of a holy person (i.e. a priest), does that make me a holy person? A priest? God?
