St. Cecilia (re)Visions
photographs, performance

A photographic and performative exploration of the long history of Saint Cecilia, patron saint of music. The work began at her titular basilica in Trastevere, Rome, and has continued in my studio portraits as the early Roman Catholic virgin martyr. The work deals with the series of disappearances and fragmentations the body/image of the saint (supposedly in the crypt of the church) has undergone in its posthumous life.
