Ritual of the Sausage
An elaborate pseudo-religious/social feast is taking place set in a windowless environment. A macabre celebration or wake, this grotesque fantasy is overwhelmed with the symbolic complexity of the carnal, precarious nature of humankind. The cycle of life and the realization that all living things consume other living things is presented. Death is forefront, holding a knife. Strings of sausages become fetish objects. They are food, rope, halo, faeces, clothing, phallus, ritual instruments and playthings. The dissonant ritual group, nun, crook, prisoner and butcher with knife and pail perform. The sausage trio turns round and round with a black bird. The female prisoner with shaved head is bound and blindfolded, representing another victim. The four handmaidens attend and service the reclining female figure. The older woman kneeing praying on her beads is straddled on the head by a white bird squawking at its black companion across the room. The two birds frame all the variations of light and dark that existing in the human pysche.
