Attempt at a Revaluation of All Values (2007)

Reading on Nietzsche and past experience as a Christian

“Attempt at a Revaluation of All Values” is a project about my thoughts on Christianity based on my past experience as a Christian and reading on Nietszche’s writings, and attempts at criticizing the authority and singularized “value”, “truth” and “reality” constructed by Christianity.

Religious paintings by “Leonardo da Vinci” are being used and appropriated as a way to make reference on the spirits of Renaissance and its challenges on Christianity. By changing the body, finger gesture or facial expression of the Christian figures in the works, it criticizes the idealized and sanctified images of “Jesus”, “Mary”, etc. and brings those unwanted secular elements like desire, hate, contempt, imperfection and different kind of relationships back to the figures.
