What's On: Christian Jankowski

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Christian Jankowski has essentially orchestrated a Christ Factor. Similar to its less then holy primetime TV equivalent, Jankowski’s show – a film called Casting Jesus – features a jury of Vatican members presiding over the performances of 13 budding Jesus, um Jesuses…Jesii? Anyway, tasks include breaking bread, the performing of miracles, cross bearing and quoting the big man himself. After witnessing actual priests advising on The Passion of Christ as to the appropriate spiritual performance of its lead, the artist was inspired by the curious actuality of the situation. The installation explores this, our own perceptions of art, religion, fiction and of course, reality.
