A modern day crucifixion. Bound, faceless, legs disturbingly splayed and amputated, arms strapped behind. Vulnerability, violence and brutality captured in the imposing glass box, that traps the tortured and at the same time makes the object a sinister spectacle that must be acknowledged. The blazing orange suit, worn by a protestor in the 2003 Amnesty International protest against the USAs incarceration, without trial or access, of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, emblazons the imprisoned body. The mirror on the chest puts us in the box and forces our recognition. This work is the central piece from Taline Temizian's Camp Delta series.
