The Soap Factory Presents: Here Comes Jesus: A Video Series by Joshua McGarvey. The artist will be releasing the video series overtime on the Soap Factory’s blog leading up to a final video to be screened in the Soap Factory’s lower level on April 15th.
Jesus is a crinkled mirror. Jesus is Play-Doh. Jesus invented a table. Stemming from one scene in Mel Gibson’s film about the crucifixion of Jesus in which the Christian messiah is shown building a table for chairs, the series embraces the ambiguous identity of god’s only son. Here Comes Jesus probes the westernization of the religious figure Jesus. Absurdity ensues as narrative and metaphor are conformed to relate to my own experience.
