Food

A “Christ” made in a chewing gum is cricified right at the center of a completely white page.

 

“The chewing gum, above all others a product of consumerism, is a symbolic nourishment of the “disposable” Faith. Contemporary metaphor of the Fast Food Eucharist, it gives access to the Lord’s Table without absolution from sins. During the Eucharist, the transubstantiation truly transforms the bread in the Lord’s flesh. The gum has Christ’s appearance, but its futile characteristics remain unmodified.”
