Crucifixion #01//10 Stephansdom Action from norarufilm on Vimeo.
The artist Emmerich Weissenberger crucifies himself symbolically on Good Friday 2010 on the St. Stephen’s Cathedral Vienna at a height of 20 metres. He is only wearing a loincloth and his crown is made from barbed wire. Left and right, he is flanked by two shrouds from his series “Anna.Ikona”, the original imprints of two corpses from the Anatomical Institute of the University of Vienna. It is a performance of deep symbolism, on Good Friday, the most important memorial day of the Catholic Church.virtual exhibition tour
