Communion

For Kneeling – Four cushions upholstered with fur: black bear, white tailed deer and Hereford cow. A shallow vat of powdered sugar. 80 images projected from above of women eating bananas. This was about praying for instant gratification, as if giving Jesus a blow job could deliver one from fear.

For Looking – Dear hide turned inside out, graphite and polyester resin.

For Rocking – 12 minute video of Leventhal wrapped up and rocking in cowhide.

 

All the hide and fur in this exhibit came from animals that were killed on the road or discarded by hunters, except for the Hereford cow which was a gift from a farmer.
