Cross in Bread

Előd Izsák – Cross in Bread ( “Kenyerbe vetett kereszt” – from  hungarian)

video installation –  2006
exhibited in Oradea – Transylvania/Romania
bread was made by the artist’s mother in Egerpatak – Seklerland/Transylvania/Romania

Under the bread on a TV-screen a loop video can be seen with a rotating cross graved on the bread-crumb.

cross in bread
