Christian communion is a tradition in which one reverently consumes bread and wine as the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. Prior to this ceremony one must be baptized, or submerged into water by a high member of the church. This symbolizes that their sins have been washed clean. By taking these well known, sacred actions from Christianity and positioning them into an informal setting, I am able to denounce this specific ceremony while maintaining its reverent intimacy. This displacement immediately hints at the paradox I am investigating throughout the duration of the piece.
