Gift of Tears

Artist: Matts Leiderstam
photography | 2016

2016, Oil painting made after Marco Palmezzano, “Christ Carrying the Cross”, 1534, and bird-scope with ref . A 16th century painting of Christ is reproduced, staged and repositioned in the current force field of the movement of refugees from West Asia to Europe. Through a mediation of vision technology, Leiderstam offers viewers an attention towards incidental details, subtle codes of desires and fantasies, and travel across histories.
