Act of Faith

Diana Thorneycroft

THE CANADIAN MARTYRDOM SERIES (Canada, 2005-2006)

Using toys, Diana Thorneycroft reconstructs historical paintings showing the martyrdom of saints, setting her scenes in Canadian landscapes. In doing so she exchanges religious devotion for black humor and absurdity, in the sour realization that people are still tortured in the name of religion, and violence has become entertainment in our popular culture.
