In Purity, Sanctity and Corporeality" I look at identity constructs especially as they relate to religion. In this piece one actor is used to portray Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary within various racial configurations. With this piece I am interested in the idea of purity and how people are questioning its relationship to whiteness and the white body.
