The Right of Chastisement:
Punish the Body and Correct the Soul
A scene from the 2000 Jackson Pollock biopic in which the artist demonstrates his famous technique of dribbling paint over pure and untouched canvases plays on one side of a freestanding confessional juxtaposed on the other side with a film clip depicting a mans physical and mental domination of an alleged adolescent the viewer is directed to witness the actions of both males as red geometric shapes remove the receiver of their actions from consideration. Referencing religious kneelers used for confessionals the sculpture directs the viewer to assume a physical position of submission /contrition while witnessing the actions of the male protagonist.
