Locale: A Tale of a Tub
Country: Países Baixos
A Tale of a Tub invited the Brazilian artist Jonathas de Andrade as the second participant of its International Residency Program. The departure point for the invitation was his project Looking for Jesus, which the artist developed during a stay in Amman, Jordan. There he started looking for an alternative and contemporary version of the face of Jesus: a face that complies with a non-western standard. The twenty portraits that De Andrade presents as a possible Jesus do not depict the white man with blue eyes we know from Western iconography.
